Introduction: Non-traumatic fracture of pedunculated osteochondroma is a known, but rare complication. Treatment protocols for such complication are debatable. However, surgical intervene have been advocated.

Case Report: It is a case report of a 14 years old male patient of atraumatic fracture of solitary osteochondroma. On radiographic examination, it showed fracture through base of pedunculated osteochondroma.

Conclusion: By pathology and clinico-radiological examination, it was a benign diagnosis. We recommend operative intervention for this rare complication.

Keywords: Pedunculated osteochondroma; fracture; non-traumatic.
