Abstract

Extraarticular synovial osteochondromatosis is a very rare benign disease whose aetiology may be primary or secondary to pre-existing pathology or after trauma. The diagnosis can be made with plain radiography and CT, and MRI is necessary to evaluate the non-mineralized soft tissue component and assess extension. It must be confirmed with a pathological study by biopsy or resection. There is up to a 5% chance of malignant transformation. The treatment of choice for the extensive extra-articular form is surgery by open resection.

The case presented illustrates an atypical form of secondary extraarticular OCS with multiple involvement of the leg, ankle and foot.

Resumen

La osteocondromatosis sinovial (OCS) extraarticular es una enfermedad benigna muy infrecuente cuya etiología puede ser primaria o secundaria a una patología preexistente o tras traumatismos. El diagnóstico puede realizarse con radiografía simple y TC, siendo necesaria la RM para evaluar el componente de partes blandas no mineralizado y valorar la extensión. Debe confirmarse con estudio anatomopatológico mediante biopsia o resección. Tiene hasta un 5% de posibilidades de experimentar transformación maligna. El tratamiento de elección de la forma extraarticular extensa es quirúrgico mediante resección abierta.

El caso presentado ilustra una forma de aparición atípica de la OCS extraarticular secundaria con afectación múltiple de la pierna, tobillo y pie.
