The authors report a case of fibro-osseous pseudo-tumour affecting a long finger. This is a rare tumour difficult to diagnose. Complete excision of the tumour was delayed till two years after its appearance as it's true nature had not been recognised at the time of the initial histopathologic examination. It is a benign tumour with a good prognosis as it does not undergo malignant degeneration and does not recur locally if excision has been complete. Errors in interpretation of the histopathologic picture have, in the past, led to unwarranted amputations of the involved fingers.
