BIZARRE FINGER PAROSTEAL OSTEOCHONDROMATOUS PROLIFERATION (NORA’S LESION): A CASE REPORT
Nora’s lesion is a rare benign lesion that occurs as a locally aggressive parosteal mass localized in the short bones of the hands and feet. Its clinical presentation and radiological features are non-specific, so there is the risk that it may easily be misdiagnosed and treated inappropriately. The first-line treatment for Nora's lesion is surgical excision. Here we present a case of a 40-year-old woman affected by Nora’s lesion of the distal phalanx of the second finger of the right hand, diagnosed by X-ray, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and which required aggressive surgical management by amputation.
