The so-called "Hereditary Multiple Exostoses" disease is characterized by hard, irregular prominences appearing in the metaphyseal region of the bones. Though transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait, skipped generation are reported and presumably represent spontaneous mutations. We experienced one case of hereditary multiple exostoses of 15 years old male patient, whose father and one brother were also affected. A brief review of related literature is also presented.
Key Words: Hereditary, Multiple, Exostoses
