Abstract

Giant cell tumour (GCT) is usually considered a benign entity. A small fraction of these tumours become malignant with time, and an extremely rare fraction may be malignant at onset. We report herein an unusual case of primary malignant GCT of the bone that relapsed locally with the same histology 14 years after a simple surgical curettage.
