Calcaneal Osteosarcoma: A Rare Instance in Adolescent Patient.

INTRODUCTION: Calcaneal osteosarcoma is extremely uncommon, accounting for <1% of all osteosarcomas. They typically exhibit swelling and chronic heel pain and are frequently clinically misdiagnosed as traumatic or inflammatory process.

CASE REPORT: We report a case of a 19-year-old girl with calcaneal osteosarcoma who initially complained of heel pain that was refractory to analgesic medications over a period of 4 months.
