Unusual Location of a Giant Cell Tumour
KeywordsGiant cell tumour, costal lesion, posterior arc, unusual localization
Giant cell tumours (GCT) are rare aggressive non-cancerous tumours which usually affect the long bones. We describe a case of GCT of the first rib in a young woman without a relevant history. The patient presented a left cervico-thoracic mass which was biopsied in our department (CT-guided biopsy). She was referred to the thoracic surgery department after histological results.
