Thirty-year-old male patient had a mass lesion on the 3rd rib. The mass lesion was resected with the subtotal resection of the 3rd rib via axillary thoracotomy. The postoperative course was uneventful, and follow-up at two years confirmed no recurrence. Here we report an osteochondroma originates from the rib which is an unusual localisation.
