Osteochondroma is a common benign bone tumour, protruding from the underlying normal bone. Osteochondromas can cause pain depending on their location and size. The pes anserinus is located at the proximal medial side of the tibia, where the tendinous insertions of the sartorius, gracilis and semitendinosus muscles collectively attach. Pes anserinus syndrome, or anserine bursitis, is a painful condition of the pes anserinus and is more common in adults typically with overweight females. The occurrence of pes anserinus syndrome is rare in the paediatric population.In the current report, five paediatric cases of pes anserinus syndrome due to osteochondroma are described. The article focuses on the clinical character and diagnosis with an emphasis on the paediatric population because the diagnosis of pes anserinus syndrome can be overlooked in this population.
