HIDALGO MENDEZ, Fernando. Bone lesion in the distal radius. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.1, pp.67-69. ISSN 1699-695X.

Giant cell tumor of the bone is a controversial neoplasm. In most cases, it behaves as a benign tumor, but approximately 15% of cases will be diagnosed as malignant during the clinical course. In the initial phase, malignancy cannot be determined neither by radiological appearance nor by histopathology; instead, recurrences of the tumor will most consistently indicate malignancy. In this report, we present the case of a 47 year old male patient with a suspicious lesion in the distal radius and we define the radiological signs that suggest diagnosis of giant cell tumor of the bone.

Keywords : Bone Neoplasms; Giant Cells.
