Introduction: A 40 year old male came with complain of pain over left ankle region since 1 month, which was progressive in nature and aggravated while walking. On examination, there was mild tenderness over the anterior aspect of the distal tibia. X-rays of tibia with ankle joint were suggestive of a lytic lesion on the distal end of tibia. MRI revealed a benign lesion with the possibility of either an INTRA OSSEOUS GANGLION CYST or GEODE. Excision of the cyst with curettage and cementing was done and the cyst was sent for histo-pathological examination which established the diagnosis of intra osseous ganglion cyst.
