Abstract

Giant cell tumor (GCT) of the bone, also called osteoclastoma, is a rare complication of Paget's bone disease. We report a patient from Southern Italy who developed a GCT infiltrating the neighboring tissues. The natural history and the therapeutic outcomes of this unique complication of Paget's bone disease are presented.
