Carpal intraosseous ganglia are one of the rarely seen pathologic conditions in the hand. In this report we present a rare case of an intraosseous ganglion cyst in a 16-year-old girl located in the triquetrum bone as an uncommon cause of wrist pain. Radiographic and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated the cystic lesion into the triquetrum. The patient was successfully treated by excision of the ganglion cyst and curettage of the bone. Clinical aspects, radiological findings and treatment modalities of this condition were briefly reviewed.
