Osteoid osteoma is a benign bony tumour that is common in males and can mimic a variety of regional musculoskeletal painful conditions often leading to a delay in diagnosis if a watchful eye is not kept. It classically causes night pains relieved on taking oral analgesics. Here we present a case report of a female patient who had a osteoid osteoma but was being treated as a case of radiculopathic pain for the past one and a half years.
