Excerpt:
Purpose: We describe a case of ultrasound-guided needle localization of an osteoid osteoma of the wrist.

Introduction: Osteoid osteomas are benign small (typically less than 1.5 cm) osteoid-forming tumors accounting for 10-12% of all primary bone tumors. The most common sites are in the appendicular skeleton, but osteoid osteomas can occur in any bone. Classically, these tumors appear as a small sclerotic lesion with a circular lucent defect, the nidus.
