ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Scapula is an irregular triangular bone with two surfaces, three projections and three borders. The three borders of the scapula are– Superior, medial and lateral. The lateral border extends from the infraglenoid tubercle and inferior angle. Normally, all borders including the lateral border are straight. But in the present case we detected an anomalous bony growth projecting from the lateral border of the scapula. The bony growth is triangular in shape. This is a rare feature, which may compress neurovascular structures. These may be probably due to over worked/stress during biomechanical movements of the scapula, calcium metabolism disorder and defects of endochondral ossification or may be a manifestation of osteochondroma. The bony outgrowths may impinge on the surrounding structures causing bundle of complications. The knowledge will be of utmost use to anatomists, clinicians and radiologists.
