Osteochondromas arising from the interosseous border of the distal tibia and involving distal fibula are uncommon. We present the case of a 34-year-old woman with an impending fracture, erosion, and weakness of the distal fibula, secondary to an osteochondroma arising from the distal tibia. Early excision of this deforming distal tibial osteochondroma avoided the future risk of pathological fracture of the distal fibula, ankle deformities, and syndesmotic complications.
