Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is uncommonly seen in children and adolescents. A distal femoral osteochondroma causing isolated lower limb DVT is even rarer and to our knowledge only four such cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of a solitary distal femoral osteochondroma in a 15-year-old adolescent presenting as isolated DVT. We highlight the potential of coexistence of DVT and osteochondroma in young patients. We also emphasize the importance of timely diagnosis and outline the plan of management when faced with such a rare condition.
