Accessory carpal bones are found in 2% of the population.1 Os centrale is a rare example of one of these anomalies and is either an accessory bone or an empty space found between the scaphoid, the trapezoid, and the capitate on x-ray films of the hand. It is important because it may be mistaken for a scaphoid fracture.
