Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Osteoid osteomas are common benign tumors normally seen in the femur, tibia, and spine. They rarely are seen in the foot. We present an unusual case of osteoid osteoma of the cuboid in a 26-year-old man. This was initially thought to be an ankle sprain, as its first presentation was after a sporting injury. It was then treated as an infection before the true diagnosis-that of osteoid osteoma-was obtained.Level of Evidence: Therapeutic, Level IV: Case study
