Benign fibrous histiocytoma is a rare benign primary skeletal tumor that occurs frequently in the long bones and the pelvis. The calcaneus is an unusual location for benign fibrous histiocytoma. We did not identify any case of benign fibrous histiocytoma involving the calcaneus in the relevant literature. We describe a 22-year-old male patient with benign fibrous histiocytoma involving the calcaneus treated with curettage and bone grafting. At the final follow-up visit, 1 year after surgery, the patient was free of pain and walking unaided. We discuss the differential diagnosis of cystic lesions of the calcaneus.
