Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc. 2012;46(2):139-43. doi: 10.3944/AOTT.2012.2542.

Abstract

A unique case of large intra-articular osteochondroma of the knee of a 15-year duration is presented along with a review of the literature. The tumor may have remained asymptomatic for such a long period because of its slow growth and stretch elongation of the quadriceps mechanism.
