LIMA, Marcelo Fernandes et al. Chronic venous disease as a clinical manifestation of tibial osteochondroma. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.2, pp.163-169. ISSN 1677-5449.

Osteochondromas are the most common type of benign tumor of the skeleton. They most frequently affect the distal extremity of the femur, with the tibia being the second most commonly affected long bone. Vascular complications of these lesions are rare, but pseudoaneurysm formation is the most frequently reported of them. In this case report, we describe a case of compression of the popliteal neurovascular bundle by a tibial osteochondroma in a diabetic patient who had been admitted to hospital to treat an infected lesion on his left foot and complained of edema and paresthesia of the left lower limb.

Palavras-chave : osteochondroma; venous insufficiency; popliteal vein.
