Abstract

Benign and malignant tumors are found in the foot, although the incidence is low. The most common bone tumor in the foot is osteochondroma, which is thought to develop in bones that form through the process of enchondral ossification. In particularly, osteochondromas in the foot mostly occur in metatarsal bones and phalanges. It is seldom found in talus. It is usually confused with osteophyte or enthesis. We report an osteochondroma case confirmed by roentgenographical and pathological investigation, after removing the masses form bilateral tali of a 19-year-old male patient presented with bilateral ankle joint pain for three years.
