Abstract

Ollier disease, also known as multiple enchondromatosis, is a rare congenital disease of unknown etiology. The main manifestation of this disease is a non‑ossifying chondrocyte mass or hamartomatous growth of a chondrocyte in the metaphysis. A few cases can develop into chondrosarcoma or osteosarcoma. The present study describes the case of a 37‑year‑old male patient with left hip pain and dyskinesia diagnosed with Ollier disease, according to clinical features and findings of imaging analysis. In general, the incidence of Ollier disease is low, and thus, it is not well‑known among orthopedic surgeons. However, due to its malignant transformation rate, medical practitioners should encourage patients to undergo regular follow‑up examinations. In an aim to provide some insight into this disease, the present study begins by describing the case of an affected patient case and subsequently presents a review of the relevant literature in order to guide the clinical diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
