Bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation (BPOP) is an unusual lesion mostly affecting the bones of the hand. The mass grows from the bone surface and consists of cartilaginous, osseous and fibrous tissue. The lesion is commonly under/misdiagnosed and confused with other lesions, mostly the osteochondromas. We present a patient with BPOP that initially confused the practitioner and radiologist in their diagnosis. We discuss the clinical, radiologic and histologic characteristics of BPOP of the hand since its first report in 1983 and present its main differential diagnosis. We reviewed 184 cases. Female were affected in 52% and male in 48%. Pro ximal phalanges were most commonly affected, followed by middle phalanges and metacarpals. Pain was reported in 47,9 % of all reported papers. The most common surgical treatment was by excision, and the rate of recurrence was 47.3%.
