We report the case of the osteochondroma of the fibular head in a 40-year-old female patient who underwent an endoscopic extirpation of a relapsed benign tumor. Initially, open surgery was performed, and the tumor was removed 3 years ago. Following the reoccurrence of the symptoms 3 years after the initial open extirpation, an x-ray and computed tomography of the calf were performed. The tumor was endoscopically removed, and the diagnosis of a relapsed osteochondroma measuring 1.5×1.5×2 cm was established. Endoscopic surgery can be applied for a successful extirpation of the osteochondroma of the fibular head.
