Osteochondroma of the talus is rare but must be considered as part of the differential diagnosis of any swelling in this part of the skeleton. This article describes the differential diagnosis and treatment of osteochondroma of the talus in a male adolescent. Careful surgical planning in all cases of benign-appearing lesions of small bones will prevent the recurrence of this lesion and its complications. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 95(5): 494–496, 2005)
