Osteoid osteoma is a benign tumor of the growing skeleton. It presents with pain, which is usually worse at night. The radiographic features consist of a central oval or round nidus surrounded first by a radiolucent area followed by another area of sclerotic bone. The metatarsals are one of the least common sites for osteoid osteoma.
We present a case of an osteoid osteoma of the right metatarsal bone in a 23-year-old male who came to us with history of severe pain in the foot since 1 and 1/2 years and was previously misdiagnosed, treated and operated for chronic osteomyelitis 5 months back but had no relief in symptoms . The clinical and radiographic findings along with the surgical management are presented. The pain disappeared immediately after the surgery. At the 6 month follow-up, the patient was pain-free and there is no evidence of recurrence.
Surgeons should be aware of the unusual presence and the atypical clinical presentation of this benign lesion in the metatarsal bones.
