An 18-year-old female presented with a painful lump at the base of her fourth metacarpal that had been present for three months. This AP radiopgraph of the hand shows a densely calcific lesion involving the proximal 20% of the fourth metacarpal. There is a periosteal Codman's reactive triangle located distally that might suggest the diagnosis of an osteoblastoma, however on biopsy this proved to be a classic osteosarcoma. The hand is a rare location for this tumor.
