Hematuria Revealing Pubic Bone Osteochondroma

Author(s): Lina Belkouchi*

Osteochondromas are benign bone tumors usually developed in long bones. They are mostly asymptomatic, discovered incidentally through imaging, but can also be rarely responsible of complications. Sometimes, their uncommon localization, pelvis bones for instance, may cause serious symptoms due to irritation or compression of adjacent organs. We report the case of a 65 years old male patient, admitted in our department for macroscopic hematuria, to which imaging confirmed diagnosis of pubis symphysis osteochondroma compressing the base of the bladder.
