Core Tip Florid reactive periostitis ossificans (RPO) is a rare benign entity that is classically localized to the phalanges of the distal extremities. This lesion is often clinico-radiologically and histologically confused for malignant entities, like osteosarcoma and chondrosarcoma. We report a rare presentation of this lesion arising from the posterior aspect of the right elbow in a 38-year-old woman, diagnosed on biopsy. Recognizing the key similarities and differences between florid RPO, and other similar appearing disorders discussed in this paper, can prevent the pitfall of misdiagnosis and unnecessary aggressive surgery.
