Abstract

Solitary bone cysts are lesions of benign nature with fluid content. The frequent locations for these cysts are the proximal femur or humerus. Rarely, they may occur in locations such as the calcaneus, mostly in adults. We have reported the second largest case series of calcaneal bone cysts.
