Osteoid osteoma is a benign osseous lesion which is mostly found in the appendicular skeleton. It produces excess bone and secretes pain-causing prostaglandins, resulting in intense night pain that is temporarily relieved by Aspirin or Ibuprofen. Few of the osteoid osteomas resolve spontaneously and some respond to a less-invasive procedure which is known as radiofrequency ablation. Surgical intervention is usually necessary for the rest. The imaging findings of osteoid osteoma are presented in this article.
