Osteoid Osteoma is a little uncommon bony lesion. It rarely affects the scapula. Only a few cases are found in the literature. Even rarer is its occurrence at base of coracoids process. Osteoid osteoma of the base of coracoid process is a rare location. They may present simply as diffuse shoulder pain. Careful evaluation of the patient is important to diagnose this rare lesion. Clinical history is valuable, as well as the radiological investigations. Surgical treatment is definitive and rewarding. We are presenting a case of osteoid osteoma involving the base of coracoid process in a 12 year boy which was diagnosed clinico-radiologically and treated surgically by de-roofing and curettage of the lesion. The boy got complete relief of pre-operative symptoms.
