Abstract

We review the case of a 58-year-old man with a benign osteoblastic lesion. This originated in the base of the right second metacarpal and eventually involved several adjacent bones, persisting for at least 27 years despite 11 operations. It was originally reported in the literature as a recurrent osteoid osteoma, but we believe it is more properly diagnosed as an aggressive osteoblastoma, since the histological pattern did not change over the years. The lesion has remained locally aggressive with no evidence of malignant characteristics.
