Osteochondroma is one of the most often observed bone tumors. During it‘s developement, osteochondroma can be the cause of vascular compression . Possible options of vascular injury can be aneurisms, as well venous or /and arterial thrombosis. Most common position of vascular involvement is observed in popliteal area. We believe, that the most informative method of investigation of this particular pathology is CT angiography. By this method we can assess the bone structure, as well degree of vascular involvement and injury: compression, stenosis, occlusions, aneurisms, parietal thrombus and other features. In this case report we present an unusual case of popliteal artery thrombosis, provoked by tibial osteochondroma in 16 years old boy. The diagnosis was done by CT angiography.
