Extract

Giant cell tumor of bone is a benign but often locally aggressive primary bone neoplasm, with a peak incidence in adults twenty to forty years of age1,2. The tumor often recurs, and it metastasizes to the lungs in approximately 3% of cases. Giant cell tumor of bone predominantly affects the ends of long bones, where it causes expansile lytic destruction of the metaphyseal-epiphyseal region as it enlarges. The distal part of the radius is commonly mentioned as the third most common site—after the distal part of the femur and the proximal part of the tibia—and accounts for approximately 10% of all cases3-8.
