Abstract A lytic lesion of the medial cuneiform of a 10-year-old boy was explored surgically, and a date palm thorn was identified. Histology revealed an aseptic granuloma. Even in the absence of a definite history of trauma, an organic foreign body lesion should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a lytic lesion of bone.
