A 19-year-old woman presented with pain at the lateral side of the fifth toe of her left foot, which was separated from the adjacent toe. Initial examination suggested dislocation of the fifth metatarsophalangeal joint due to a past fracture. Radiographs showed a mass arising from the proximal phalanx of the little toe, with no medullary and cortical continuity. Excisional biopsy of the mass was performed, and a histologic diagnosis of bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation of bone (Nora’s lesion) was made. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 96(2): 158–161, 2006)
