      Hereditary multiple exostosis is a rare, autosomal dominant, highly penetrant genetic disorder that is characterized by the development of osteochondromas on the metastasis of long and flat bones. The development of osteochondromas on the scapula is unusual but have been reported. Here, we present a case of an osteochondroma of the ventral scapula with pre-operative concern for invasion into the second rib. Through an open approach, the lesion was found to be well isolated within a bursa and it was resected without complication. The patient had a short hospital stay with good functional and cosmetic results.
