Osteoid osteoma is a benign bone tumor traditionally treated nonoperatively or by operative excision. However, radiofrequency ablation is being used increasingly for treatment, as there are several reports supporting its effectiveness. Radio-frequency ablation is precise, minimally invasive, safe, effective, and associated with minimal complications and reduced use of healthcare resources. We report a patient treated with radiofrequency ablation for tibial osteoid osteoma and thermal necrosis of the skin.
