We report six cases of osteoid osteoma of the elbow. Elbow pain was the presenting complaint in all of these young adult patients. A variety of diagnoses were entertained, and four patients underwent surgical procedures that were not helpful. Although an abnormality was identified on plain x-ray films, tomograms and a bone scan were helpful in isolating the lesion. A CT scan proved valuable in two cases. Complete en bloc excision relieved pain and improved function in each case.
