The reported incidence of osteosarcoma of the foot is very low. Osteosarcoma of the talus is extremely rare and few cases have been reported in the literature. The clinical findings are not typical, and osteosarcoma of the talus can be easily misdiagnosed, resulting in a delay in proper treatment. We report the case of a patient with osteosarcoma of the talus, from a series of 120 osteosarcomas treated at our hospital between 1966 and 2002.
