Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Extraskeletal osteochondroma of the foot are rare benign cartilaginous tumours. We present a case of soft-tissue osteochondroma in the heel pad superficial to the postero-inferior aspect of the calcaneus. We propose the pathogenesis of this lesion might be related to metaplasia in the plantar aponeurosis as described in literature, or it may be a fracture of the calcaneal osteochondroma, growing and presenting as soft-tissue lesion in the heel pad.
