A 31-year-old female presented with a bony lump arising from her ribcage posteriorly on the right side. This radiograph of the ribcage shows an exophytic, heavily calcified, lobulated mass arising from the posterior aspect of one of the ribs on the right side. The mass was bulging into the thoracic cavity and the clinicians were concerned about the possiblity of a chondrosarcoma. For that reason, the lesion and the adjacent rib were totally excised. It proved to be a solitary osteochondroma and not a chondrosarcoma.
