Fibro-osseous pseudotumour is a rare diagnosis for an acutely swollen finger with excruciating pain. Incomplete excision of the lesion could lead to rapid recurrence and may mimic infection or malignancy. Prompt recognition of the benign nature of this condition is important to avoid amputation on a major digit. We report the cases of two patients who presented with finger pain because of recurrence after lesions in the fingers after initial lesion excision.
