Synchronous multicentric giant cell tumour of immature skeleton with epiphysiometaphyseal origin


Giant cell tumour of bone accounts for 5% of all primary bone tumours. Multicentric giant cell tumour is an infrequent variety be it either synchronous or metachronous accounting for less than 1% of all giant cell tumours. Synchronous multicentric giant cell tumour of foot and ankle with epiphysiometaphyseal origin is unheard of. We delineate a case of soap-bubble appearance lytic lesions at left distal tibia and talus in an early adolescent woman with biopsy proven giant cell tumour for its rarity and its successful management by extended curettage and allogenic impaction bone grafting.
