ABSTRACT: Giant cell tumor (GCT) of bone involving the proximal radius is extremely rare. Here, the authors present the case of a 33-year-old man with an expansile, osteolytic lesion in the proximal radius, which was diagnosed by biopsy as GCT. The rarity of this lesion in the proximal radius is highlighted, and the authors describe their method of reconstruction, which involved en-bloc excision followed by reconstruction with polyethylene, pins, a screw, and bone cement. An acceptable intermediate term result was achieved.Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery 05/2011; 131(5):627-30. DOI:10.1007/s00402-010-1180-6 · 1.60 Impact Factor
