FERRAO, PNF; SARAGAS, NP; STRYDOM, A  e  TLADI, M. Osteoid osteoma of the hallux: a case report and review of the literature. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.4, pp.52-56. ISSN 2309-8309.

Osteoid osteoma (OO) of the phalanges of the foot is a rare occurrence, making it a diagnostic dilemma. Classically OO presents with localised pain, which is worse at night. This pain is often relieved by the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). In the foot however it does not exhibit the classic radiological picture. This makes it difficult to distinguish from a more common diagnosis like infection and inflammation. This diagnosis should be considered in patients with no obvious cause for chronic night foot pain. We present a case of a child with osteoid osteoma of the hallux. Level of evidence: Level 5.

Palavras-chave : osteoid osteoma; hallux; foot; tumour; night pain.
