Osteochondroma or costal exostosis is the most common benign thoracic bone tumor. It often presents with intrathoracic growth that can cause laceration of the lung and hemothorax1 as a result of closed thoracic injury, as in the case shown here. Video-assisted thoracoscopy2 allowed perfect visualization and resection of the bone tumor and evacuation of the hemothorax.
