This report points out that although most osteoblastomas appear in patients <30 years old, it is uncommon for the lesion to present in the very young. The authors note that osteoblastoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a lytic lesion because patients may be too young to communicate their complaints. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
