Abstract

This is an unusual case of an adamantinoma in an early phase of evolution. It was much smaller than adamantinomas typically seen at presentation, although it was located in the usual anterior tibial cortical region. Slow growth and a prolonged period of symptoms are common with adamantinoma and were also observed in this patient. The multifocal presentation within the same bone is unusual. This case illustrated the need to consider adamantinoma in the differential diagnosis of any pre-tibial cortical lesion despite the small size, benign presentation, or the longevity of symptoms.
