We report a case of Bizarre Parosteal Osteochondromatous Proliferation (BPOP) of the hand that was initially misdiagnosed as an osteochondroma. BPOP, although a benign lesion, behaves aggressively with rapid growth and high risk of local recurrence after local resection. The distinguishing features of BPOP as opposed to an osteochondroma are discussed.
