Background: A unicameral bone cyst is a benign bone lesion with a thin membrane enclosing serous fluid or serosanguinous fluid. It is typically asymptomatic. From the time of birth to the age of 20, males are more likely to develop it than females (3 males to 1 female). There is no universally accepted method for treating this problem, but the patient's age, level of activity, and bone size and strength are very important factors in determining the best course of action. Immobilization, aspiration, methylprednisolone injections, curettage, and bone grafting with or without internal fixation are among the treatment possibilities.

Case presentation: The patient presented to the orthopaedic department at Atbara Teaching Hospital with limbing and right-sided knee pain for three months. One day before admission, he presented with severe right hip pain and inability to bear weight. X-ray showed a cystic lesion on the femoral neck, with incomplete superior femoral neck fracture and fallen leaf sign.

Intervention and prognosis: Performing Bone Curettage, immobilization, and bone marrow aspiration causes the patient to conduct weight bearing activities.

Conclusion: UBC's approach to treating this young male opens the door to a new era of treatment.
