Giant cell reparative granuloma of the proximal tibia: a case report.
Giant cell reparative granulomas (GCRGs) are non-neoplastic inflammatory lesions, usually of the jaw or gingiva or small bones of the hands and feet. We report one such case in the right proximal tibia of a 45-year-old man. Radiological studies showed a lytic lesion with marginal sclerosis in the epiphysis and metaphysis. After open biopsy, a preliminary diagnosis of a benign giant cell tumour was made. One month after admission, the lesion was curetted and filled with cancellous bone and hydroxyapatite. Based on the histology of the curetted lesion, the diagnosis was changed to a GCRG. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course, with no evidence of local recurrence and metastasis. He died from gastric cancer 2 years later.
