Adamantinoma is a rare neoplastic bone tumor that has the potential to metastasize.

The tumour is very likely to be mistaken for other bone diseases and therefore it is important to investigate and study about its nature and thus differentiate it from other differentials. Nevertheless, literature on the presentation, findings, investigations and treatment options of adamantinomas are limited.
