Abstract

Giant cell tumor (GCT) is a primary benign neoplasm of bone accounting for 5% of all skeletal tumors. Although considered benign, it has propensity for local recurrence, distant metastasis as well as malignant transformation. GCTs of bone usually arise in the epiphyseal region of the limbs, and rarely it affects the ribs. We report a case 52-year-old male who presented with left sided rib mass. Total excision of rib mass with thoracic reconstruction with prolene mesh was done. Microscopic examination of the mass showed features of giant cell tumor. Authors consider the rarity location of this entity along with unusual clinical presentation worth to publish.


Keywords: Giants cell, Benign, metastasis, Epiphyseal.
