Os navicular bone is an accessory bone of the foot, which is mainly found on the medial side of the proximal navicular bone. Os navicular bone may be symptomatic and cause medial foot pain. We report a case of a 42-year-old athlete male having right foot pain diagnosed with os navicular syndrome on 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy SPECT/CT. We emphasize on the use of SPECT/CT in not only allocating the ossicle anatomically, but also for the purpose of evaluating an active source of pain in a region of multiple complex small bones.
