Osteochondromas are common benign bone tumors arising from metaphyseal region of long bones. They are notorious for undergoing malignant transformation. We present a case of a middle aged woman with recurrent episodes of swelling in the middle of left 4th finger post excision. Bone scan was performed to look for any malignant transformation of finger lesion and also to rule out skeletal metastases due to recent onset bone pains. 99m Tc MDP (Technetium methylene diphosphonate) bone scan demonstrated a focal hot spot in middle of left 4th finger along the radial side. There was no evidence of skeletal metastases. Surgery is usually curative (70-90%). Limb sparing wide local excision is treatment of choice.
