A rare first metatarsal unicameral-type bone cyst with a deceptive radiographic appearance and size and an unusual pathological etiology was identified in a female patient. This eccentric cyst was observed only postoperatively by radiograph. Review of the patient's history documented a foot injury from a catfish spine as the etiology of this chronically inflamed cyst.
