Osteochondromas are the most common benign bone tumors comprising 9% of all bone tumors and 35% of benign bone tumors Porter (2000). Hereditary exostoses (HME) is an autosomal dominant disorder with variable penetrance characterized by multiple osteochondromas near joints. It is one of the most commonskeletal dysplasias with a frequency of about 1.18%.
