Patients presenting with prolonged ankle pain following trivial trauma should be clinically and radiologically investigated. We present two young adults with incidentally diagnosed lytic lesion of talus. They underwent extended curettage and biopsy. Histopathological examination proved as aneurysmal and simple bone cyst and went for a secondary procedure of bone grafting. We want to emphasize the importance of differential diagnosis in the management of lytic lesions and complete removal of tumor.
