ABSTRACTHereditary family multiple osteochondroma is a benign disease that requires systematic control on account of its possible malignization and advance of deformations. The objective of this paper was to present a patient diagnosed with a tumor after a long period of time elapsed from the excision of her last lesion. Here is a female patient aged 62 years, with history of hereditary family multiple osteochondroma since she was 8 years-old. She had been operated on several times in her childhood. She went to the hospital because she suffered urinary incontinence and volume increase in the vaginal region for the last 8 months. Her father, son and niece had the same problem. Scars and deformities were observed in limbs. On the vaginal and rectal exam, a stony tumor was found, which occupied the right anterior and lateral wall of the vagina. The radiographic studies and the abdominal CT showed a tumor in the right ischiopubic ramus. The patient was operated on to remove the tumor and her progress was satisfactory. The pathological anatomy report confirmed a 6 x 5 cm tumor with high activity of chondrocytes. In this patient, a tumor of the same disease located in the ischiopubic ramus occurred 50 years after the last excision of another tumor. The extroperitoneal laparatomy was an excellent method to achieve tumor excision.
