Osteochondromas are usually osseous outgrowths arising from the metaphyseal region of cortical bone. Moreover, osteochondroma can also arise from flat bones and the spine. However, their origin in the ribs is extremely rare and always near the costochondral junction. We present a 26-year-old male who presented with chief complaints of difficulty in walking for 2 weeks subsequently diagnosed with osteochondroma based on the presence of a cartilage cap on Magnetic resonance imaging.
