ABSTRACT
Intraosseous ganglia are benign cystic lesions located in the subchondral bone. Intraosseous ganglion cysts of the ankle are relatively uncommon. We present a case of recurrent intraosseous ganglion in the ankle of a 41-year-old female who had recurrence after initial surgery. She was treated effectively by curettage and autogenous cancellous bone grafting. At the final follow-up, satisfactory results were obtained with no recurrence or complications.

Mentions: Postoperatively, a non-weight-bearing short-leg cast was applied to protect the ankle joint. The cast was removed at 6 weeks and physiotherapy commenced. Three months later the patient returned to full work. At 4 months after surgery her X-rays demonstrated complete graft incorporation and healing (Figure 7).
