Abstract

The occurrence of osteoid osteoma in the hand is rare. Recently we examined a case of osteoid osteoma of distal phalanx of the middle finger in a twenty-year-old man. This case presented with very typical clinical and radiologic features of an osteoid osteoma, which made diagnosis and treatment straightforward.
