Giant cell tumour of the second cuneiform: report on an unusual site Volume 24, issue 3, Septembre 2008


Giant cell tumours are uncommon, benign, osseous disorders, which usually affect the extremities of long bones once they are fully-grown. They are very rarely encountered in foot bones. We report a case of giant cell tumour of the left second cuneiform in a young girl, revealed by foot pain. In this reported case, we discuss clinical and radiological aspects as well as suitable therapies for this tumour.
