Osteochondromas also called exostosisare commonly encountered benign tumors and they are characterized by cartilage capped bony projection arising on external surface containing a marrow cavity that is continuous with that of underlying bone. Osteochondromas tend to grow eccentrically rather than centrifugally. We are reporting a case of an 3 month-old male with hard, irregular swelling over anterolateral aspect of his left leg with neurological deficit[foot drop].MRI showed that the origin of the tumor was from proximal fibula with compression /entrapment of common fibular nerve. Nerve was released along with excision of tumor. A histopathological examination suggestive of a benign osteochondroma. Patient was recovered with good nerve function without any evidence of recurrence.
