Osteoid osteomas are benign, typically intracortical lesions most often affecting the diaphyses of long bones. We describe a case involving a 26-year-old male laborer who presented with the insidious onset of ulnar-sided wrist pain. He was diagnosed with and successfully treated with surgical excision for an osteoid osteoma involving the hook of the hamate.
