Osteoid osteoma is a benign, selflimited tumor of bone that usually requires surgical excision for relief of pain and to prevent long-term consequences. Radio-frequency electrodes have been successfully and safely used to ablate small areas of the central nervous system and to perform ablation elsewhere in the body. The authors have used this technique in four patients with proved or presumptive osteoid osteoma, completely relieving the symptoms in three.
