Abstract

Introduction: Giant cell tumors (GCT) are benign, but locally aggressive primary bone neoplasms, that frequently occur in the epiphyses of the long bones. Less than 1% of all GCTs primarily involve the skull where they are preferentially seen in the sphenoid and temporal bones. In the pediatric age group they are exceptionally rare.
