Ganglion cysts are the most common wrist tumors, and 60 -70% originate dorsally from the scapholunate interval.  Ossification of these lesions is exceedingly rare, with only one such lesion located in the finger reported in the literature. We present a case of an ossified dorsal wrist ganglion in a 68-year-old woman.
