What is Multiple Hereditary Exostoses?

  • Multiple Hereditary Exostoses: An hereditary condition which is characterized by benign bony growths projecting from a bone surface.
  • Multiple Hereditary Exostoses: Hereditary disorder transmitted by autosomal dominant genes (EXT1-3) and characterized by multiple exostoses (multiple osteochondromas) near the ends of long bones. The genetic abnormality results in a defect in the osteoclastic activity at the metaphyseal ends of the bone during the remodeling process in childhood or early adolescence. The metaphyses develop benign, bony outgrowths often capped by cartilage. A small number undergo neoplastic transformation.
