Abstract

Giant cell tumor in small bones is a rare condition characterized by extensive bony destruction and a high recurrence rate. Intralesional excision with curettage and autologous bone grafting has been used as a standard treatment method for giant cell tumor of the bones. We report the case of a 30-year-old female with giant cell tumor of the talar body. She was followed up for 19 years after intralesional curettage and autologous bone grafting treatment.
