Osteoid osteoma is a painful bone tumor, and has been infrequently described at various locations within the elbow joint.The lesion is usually associated with disabling pain and occasionally may result in progressive stiffness of the elbow. Radiofrequency ablation is usually the treatment of choice; however, arthroscopic excision has been described as an alternate management option and can be combined with arthroscopic elbow adhesiolysis for restoration of motion.Arthroscopic identification of the lesion is difficult, and inadequate excision may result in persistence of symptoms and stiffne.The purpose of this report is to describe an arthroscopic technique for excision of an osteoid osteoma situated in the distal humerus. Elbow arthroscopy is used to perform adhesiolysis, and intraoperative arthroscopic appearance of the osteoid osteoma is described for accurate identification.......
