Diaphyseal aclasis, also termed Hereditary Multiple Exostosis (HME) or osteochondromatosis is characterised by multiple bony prominences that grow near joint lines throughout the skeleton.
The disease congenital diaphyseal aclasis was considered but the growths usually join the bone at right angles to the bone shaft (Edeiken & Hodes 1967: 104, 107).
Nhereditary Multiple Exostoses (HME, EXT, MHE, Diaphyseal Aclasis, Familial Bony Spurs) is usually, but not necessarily, an inherited condition which can produce bony lumps close to the end of any bone, but particularly those of the limbs
