The article by Ali is entitled Ollier Disease (Apollo Medicine 2017; 14: 72-74).

The author then describes a case of a child with multiple exostoses, confirmed by the radiology.

Ollier disease is multiple enchondromata rather than multiple exostoses. It is likely the child had multiple hereditary exostoses (formerly known as diaphyseal aclasis) rather than Ollier disease.

It is important to recognize the difference between the two conditions.
