Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor. It rarely affects rearfoot bones, and only a few cases of talar osteochondroma have been reported. We report a case of a solitary osteochondroma of the talus that presented as a painful callus on the anterior portion of the ankle that was refractory to dermatologic treatment.
