Abstract

Extraskeletal ossification may occur in muscle and other soft tissue, The phenomenon may be classified as follows: (1) progressive Myositis ossificans, (2) traumatic localized Myositis ossificans, and (3) nontraumatic localized Myositis ossificans. The literature suggests that 75% of the localized forms occur as a result of trauma. We report a case of non traumatic myositis ossificans which involved the hypothenar region of the hand.
