Giant cell tumour of bone was first described by Sir Astley Cooper in 1818. The suggestion that the tumour might recur after removal and even behave like a malignant condition was made by Virchow in 1862. Lichtenstein (1956) started that the more he saw of giant cell tumours of bone, the more wholesome was his respect for them. Many authors felt that the treatment of giant cell tumour left much to be desired. This study was undertaken to evaluate the clinical features and the results of the various forms of surgical treatment of this tumour.
