The Teaching Point

Osteoid osteoma is an infrequent but important cause of musculoskeletal pain, however it can be difficult to make an early diagnosis, particularly when these lesions present with neurological signs and symptoms. In such cases the diagnosis of osteoid osteoma requires an accurate clinical history and most importantly an awareness of the possibility of the diagnosis.

Abstract
We present an illustrative case of osteoid osteoma of the femur, in an 11 year old male child where the clinical features were masquerading the diagnosis of tethered cord syndrome and lead to the delay in diagnosis.
