Fibro-osseous Pseudotumor of the Distal Phalanx

An Unusual Finding

Restricted access

Fibro-osseous pseudotumor of the digit is an unusual benign tumor that appears on the extremities. A 45-year-old, human immunodeficiency virus–positive man presented with a painful lesion on the tip of the fourth toe of his right foot. The tumor was completely excised without any connection to the underlying bone being observed, although the phalanx had to be extirpated. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of fibro-osseous pseudotumor. At the follow-up visit, 12 months later, no abnormalities were found.
