Abstract

Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor, and occurs most frequently in the proximal humerus, tibia, and distal femur. It rarely affects talus. Therefore, we report a patient with osteochondroma of the talus. Excision is a successful method of treatment for symptomatic osteochondromas with a low morbidity. Precise surgical planning will prevent the recurrence of this lesion.
