Osteoid osteomas are often localised in long bones but only rarely in the carpus. This is a case report of an osteoid osteoma in the trapezoid. Diagnosis was difficult and established late, due to misleading initial symptoms. Radiological examination allowed localisation of the nidus. For osteoid osteoma localised in a carpal bone, we recommend total removal without bone-graft or arthrodesis.
