Özet

Our case of study is a 17 years old female patient who presented with painful scoliosis secondary to osteoid osteoma. The patient remained undiagnosed for years complaining of non-subsiding lumbar pain. Three years later, a thorough physical assesment and advanced radiological examination revealed that the patient's complaint was related to an osteoid osteoma accompanying scoliosis. Surgical resection, fusion and instrumentation were applied.
