Must be a typo
There is not rightangled triangle where all 3 sides are odd
If two of the three sides are odd, then the missing side is
4
part of the well knows rightangled triangle with the smallest integer values, 3 , 4, and 5
(3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2)

If the error is in claiming it is a right triangle, then a third side of 7 is possible.
