Osteoid osteoma - case report and literature review
Keywords:Osteoid osteoma; Bone neoplasms; Talus.
Osteoid osteoma (OO) is a benign osteoblastic bone tumor, most frequently affecting young male patients. Due to its rarity and nonspecific symptomatology, the OO diagnosis in the foot can be postponed and confused with diseases leading to the absence of the correct diagnosis for years. In this report, we present a 22-year-old male patient diagnosed with OO in the talus. His diagnosis was delayed for approximately three years, confused, and treated as a complication after an ankle sprain. We also conducted a literature review on OO in the foot and ankle.
