Abstract

Bony tumors in the hand and wrist are uncommon conditions. The objective of this article was to describe an impressive soft-tissue reaction with pain after radiofrequency ablation was used to treat a proximal phalangeal osteoid osteoma in the hand. We feel radiofrequency ablation should be cautiously used in the treatment of these lesions out of concern for similar complications.
