Abstract

Osteoid osteomas are benign osteoblastic tumours encountered relatively commonly among skeletal lesions. Despite distinct clinical findings, atypical presentations make for a challenging or delayed diagnosis which may negatively affect a patient’s quality of life in the interim. We present the case of a young female rugby player with a subperiosteal osteoid osteoma of the distal fibula – a rare location for this type of tumour.
