  • Ollier's disease is characterised by severe deformity of the extremities and retarded growth because of multiple enchondromas. For correction of deformity, the Ilizarov method has been used although it has many complications. A 17-year-old boy with Ollier's disease had a limb-length discrepancy of 17.4 cm, with a valgus deformity of the right knee and recurvatum of the femur of 23 degrees . He had undergone three unsuccessful attempts to correct the deformities by using external fixators. We… CONTINUE READING
