We report the case of a 35-year-old man who presented with pain in the right heel. Plain radiographs and computerized tomography revealed a solitary cyst of the calcaneus. Endoscopic curettage of the lesion and endoscopically assisted filling of the lesion with calcium phosphate bone cement injected percutaneously were performed. After 12 months, no recurrence was noted and the patient was symptom free.
