Abstract:   (4418 Views)
Osteoid osteoma is a benign bone tumor that rarely involves scaphoid and other carpal bones. The patient of the present case report was a young man with chronic wrist pain and normal radiographs and CT scan who underwent surgery with probable diagnosis of osteoid osteoma. The pain was relieved after removal of osteoid osteoma. The significance of this case is due to the rare involvement of scaphoid by steoid osteoma, problems with clinical diagnosis and its unusual radiographic presentation. Osteoid osteoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of chronic wrist pain in young patients.
