Osteochondroma occurs most frequently in the long bones such as the proximal humerus, tibia, and distal femur. It is rare for it to originate in the talar neck. In the present case report, we describe a case of osteochondroma arising from the talar neck. Furthermore, a review of the published studies of talar osteochondroma was performed to obtain a better understanding of the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of this unusual entity.
