Study Design. A case of heterotopic ossification in the lumbar spine associated with the off label use of rhBMP-2 is reported.Objective. To highlight a previously unreported complication of rhBMP-2 use and to review literature pertinent to the topic.Summary of Background Data. There is no report in the literature regarding a large mass of rhBMP-2 associated heterotopic ossification surrounding the paraspinal musculature.Methods. The clinical and radiographic features of this complication and treatment course are presented.Results. The surgical excision of heterotopic ossification and removal of symptomatic instrumuntation has resulted in the patient remaining asymptomatic at 1 year of follow up examination.Conclusion. The reported case adds to the literature of off label use of rhBMP-2 and the potential for the formation of heterotopic ossification with its use.
