Pigmented villonodular synovitis is a common disease entity particularly in the knee joint but its incidence in the foot is quite rare. A case of first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS), presented to us with recurrence of symptoms after surgical excision done outside our institute. After histological confirmation of recurrence of the disease, repeat open surgical excision was performed. After being asymptomatic for two months she presented to us with recurrence of symptoms for which hyperkeratotic plaque at the ventral aspect of the first MTP joint was found to be responsible on physical examination. It was treated surgically by pairing it and now patient is symptom free for last 1 year. It signifies the importance of the histopathology in the diagnosis and recurrence of the PVNS and thorough physical examination in the management of the foot pathologies.
