Podiatry Internet Journal 2 (2):4
Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor of the foot. A case is presented of a teenage girl who returns after one year excision with recurrent bone tumor. We discuss etiology of this tumor and the diagnosis and treatment options. After initial excision, a revisional surgery was performed one year later that included more aggressive curettage of the recurrent osteochondroma with allogenic bone grafting using InterGro® DBM Plus.
