Abstract

Turret exostosis, or acquired osteochondroma, was first described by Wissinger et al. as a subperiosteal bone formation which develops beneath the extensor apparatus It shares common clinical and radiological features with florid reactive periostitis and bizarre periosteal osteochondromatous proliferation (Nora’s lesion) which belong to the same group of reactive lesions of the bone surface. Turret exostosis is a rare complication of a minor injury to the hand. Its peak incidence is in the third and fourth decades of life, predominantly affecting the proximal and middle phalanges of the hand. Metacarpal involvement has also been reported. It is characterized by pain, soft tissue swelling and a growing mass leading to limitation of motion and cosmetic deformity. This is a report of seven patients in whom lump formation and limitation of motion were the presenting symptoms of turret exostosis. The literature is reviewed and the possible pathogenesis of this disorder is discussed.
