Abstract

Case report: Giant-cell tumor (GCT) of the bone is benign bone tumor which usually arises from the epiphysis of long bones. Distal femur and proximal tibia are the most common sites of this tumor. The proximal radius is extremely rare site of this particular tumor. We present a rare case of Giant cell tumor of proximal radius in a twenty-one year old girl, for which wide margin resection was performed successfully with no recurrence, complications or disability seen at one year follow up.
