Abstract

  Giant cell tumor occur mainly in young adults and account for 5% of all primary tumors of bone. It generally affect the metaphysoepiphyseal region of long bones, as well as less often flat bones. Distal femur and proximal tibia are the most common sites followed by the distal radius. Though this tumor is classified as benign, it is characterized by a high potential of local aggressiveness, a high risk of recurrence, a risk of metastasis and malignant degeneration. Although these tumors are fully studied, their treatment remains a subject of debate, in fact the challenge is to resect the entire tumor while maintaining the proper functioning of the affected limb. Currently, with the technical advances in the prosthetic field, the use of massive prosthesis after resection showed it superiority compared to the other methods of reconstruction. In this presentation, we aimed to report the case of a patient with distal femoral giant cell tumor treated by en bloc resection and reconstruction by a hinge massive prosthesis with good functional outcome.
