Abstract

Introduction: Paraarticular osteochondroma of the knee is a rare finding usually in the middle-aged demographics. These benign lesions usually present with dull aches and restriction of activity depending on the size of the lesion.

Paraarticular Osteochondroma are a sub category to extra skeletal osteochondroma which are hypothesized to arise from metaplasia of soft tissue and has no bony attachment. Three types of extraskeletal osteochondromas are defined which includes synovial chondromatosis, soft tissue chondroma and intracapsular but extraarticular osteochondroma.

Case: We here present the first case from the United Arab Emirates of a patient presenting with pain and restriction of activity due to intracapsular, para-articular osteochondroma at infrapatellar Hoffa fat pad of the knee with successful pain relief and improvement of function after surgical excision.

Keywords: Para-Articular Osteochondroma; Intracapsular; Hoffa Fat Pad
