Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD) developing in the trochlea of the humerus is extremely rare. It may cause pain, mechanical symptoms, and loss of elbow motion, typically in the adolescent athlete. The etiology and the treatment strategy for this lesion remain unclear.
The authors describe an adolescent boxer with osteochondritis dissecans involving the trochlea of the humerus treated successfully with conservative treatment.
