Abstract: 
Background and Purpose: Osteoid Osteoma is a benign tumor often involving long bones of lower limb and diaphysis. This article is a case report of osteoid osteoma of the right distal metaphysis of radius. The Patient: A 26-year male computer operator referred with the chief complaint of pain in the right wrist from three years ago manifested as a small bone tumor in the distal radius. The pain was intermittent tending to become more severe at night with only ibuprofen (tablet) being effective on his pain. MRI and X-ray images taken from the wrist signified osteoid osteoma. Finally the tumor was removed under general anesthesia and biopsy confirmed the osteoid osteoma too. Conclusion: One of the causes of chronic wrist pain can be osteoid osteoma and should be differentiated from Carpal tunnel syndrome osteomyelitis rheumatoid arthritis and lymphoproliferative Synovitis.
