Summary

Background: Osteoid osteoma is a rare bone tumor predominantly encountered in young males. Pain is the most common and sometimes the only symptom at presentation. Diagnosis and treatment are particularly challenging especially when the location is unusual, such as the case of the shoulder.

Case Report: This is a case of an 18 year old female patient, who came to the orthopedic clinic, after suffering from chronic pain in the right shoulder for two years. It was first misdiagnosed as a regional pain syndrome and was unsuccessfully treated with painkillers and physiotherapy. Imaging showed a unique scapular glenoid-coracoid process space osteoid osteoma that was successfully treated by percutaneous computerized tomography scan-guided radiofrequency ablation.

Conclusion: This case report supports prescribing further imaging investigation in case of any chronic shoulder pain so that rare osteoid osteomas do not get misdiagnosed and unnecessary treatment burden gets saved.
