Osteoma cutis is a rare occurrence of bone within the skin. The scalp, neck, tarso, and extremity are the most common sites, but it has been reported in fingers and thumb. We experieced one case of osteoma cutis in a 65 years old female, who had a 0.8¡¿0.6 cm sized hard mass on the tip of thumb with associated nail deformity. We excised the mass and report with associated references.
