Giant cell tumors have been extensively studied but the debate still continues on the ideal management. Treatment modalities range from simple curettage followed by packing of cavity with bone cement or grafts to more radical surgeries like enbloc resection with reconstruction. More radical procedures are associated with much higher patient morbidity. All the procedures are associated with recurrence and there is no consensus on the treatment of local recurrence.We present the case report of a 21 year male with Giant cell tumor distal radius treated initially by wide excision and reconstruction using autologous non vascularized fibula who had recurrence 2 years after the initial surgery
