Osteoid osteoma predominates all symptomatic benign bone tumors in younger patients with an incidence reaching 10%. Night pain responding to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain medication, especially aspirin is its pathognomonic symptom. Osteoid osteoma lesion in the bone at tendon insertion is difficult to diagnose with pain pattern becoming atypical; clinical signs and radiographic presentations are misleading and histological features altered. The osteoid osteoma at deltoid tubercle of the humerus is rare and missed in the initial presentation. This case report describes how an osteoid osteoma of the deltoid insertion of the humerus can be different.
