Abstract

Pelvic rib is a rare anomaly where ectopic rib is found in a pelvic region. It is usually found occasionally in asymptomatic patients. We report a case of 15 years old male, diagnosed with a symptomatic pelvic rib. It had an unusual presentation creating a pseudotumor associated with pain and reduced range of motion in the hip joint. Patient was operated on with good result and final diagnosis was confirmed in pathological examination.
