Osteochondromas are common benign tumours affecting the long bones of the body. Often they are asymptomatic, associated with growing bone and their discovery is incidental. Osteochondromas in the talus are quite rare and their plresence as a cause for tarsal tunnel syndrome is rarer still. Here we report a case of a 10 year old female patient having a osteochondroma of the talus that was presenting with the symptoms of tarsal tunnel syndrome along with tibio-talar arthritic changes. Excision of the bony mass was done which relieved the compressive symptoms and improved the range of motion at the joint. The postop followup has been uneventful at one year now
