Pelvic digit is a rare congenital anomaly of pelvis usually discovered incidentally on plain radiography. It usually develops in the soft tissue adjacent to the normal skeletal tissue. Its importance lays in its differentiation from heterotopic ossification, osteochondroma, Fongâ€™s disease and traumatic avulsion injuries of pelvis to avoid any unnecessary investigations and interventions. Here, we report a 32-year-old male presenting with complain of pain in right hip, was subjected to radiographic examination and two pelvic digits were noticed arising from the iliac bone in addition to features of osteoarthritis of hip joint. The symptomatology was attributed to osteoarthritis of hip after thorough physical examination and imaging investigations.
