Abstract

Abstract: Enchondromas are rarely occurring tumours in the pelvis. They have predilection for the phalanges and their occurrence in male and female are equal. We present a case of a 32 year old nulliparous who had history of painless pelvic mass and deep dyspareunia that precluded her from having satisfying coitus hence avoidance of her husband and subsequent infertility. The tumour was resected via Maylard abdominal incision and access was gained into retro-pubic space of Retzius avoiding the bladder and its neck structures. Haemostasis was secured and reconstruction plate and screws were used in stabilising the superior pubic ramus. She recuperated well and currently on follow up in Orthopaedic out-patient department. Keywords: Pelvic Enchondroma, Dyspareunia, Infertility.
