Antecubital fossa lesions are uncommon conditions that present to the orthopedic clinic. Furthermore, the radius bone is an uncommonly reported location for an osteochondroma, especially when presenting with a concurrent reactive bicipitoradial bursitis.

Osteochondromas are a type of developmental lesion rather than a true neoplasm. They constitute up to 15% of all bone tumors and up to 50% of benign bone tumors. They may occur as solitary or multiple lesions. Multiple lesions are usually associated with a syndrome known as hereditary multiple exostoses (HME). Malignant transformation is known to occur but is rare.

Bicipitoradial bursitis is a condition which can occur as primary or secondary (reactive) pathology. In the presented case, the radius bone osteochondroma caused reactive bicipitoradial bursitis. The differential diagnosis of such antecubital fossa masses is vast but may be narrowed down through a targeted history, stepwise radiological investigations and histological confirmation.
