Shipla Roy, Sanghamitra Mukherjee, Manisha Mahata, Jayati Datta, Tushar Kanti Das.


Giant cell tumors (GCT) commonly occur at the ends of long bones. However in rare cases, they can occur in bones of hands and feet. We here report a case of giant cell tumor of first metacarpal bone in a 33-year-old male to highlight the importance of occurrence of such a common bone tumor in extremely rare location. Diagnosis of giant cell tumor should not be missed even in extremely rare location as GCT is well known for its aggressive behavior and local recurrence.

Key words: small bones, first metacarpal, giant cell tumor
