Described as asymptomatic and an incidental finding on a plain x-ray film, the "pelvic digit" is a rare congenital anomaly. A 35-year-old man is of a rare symptomatic pelvic digit that warranted surgical excision. Its importance lies in its differentiation from acquired abnormalities due to trauma such as myositis ossificans and avulsion injuries of pelvis. If this entity is kept in mind, unnecessary investigations or interventions can be avoided.
