Abstract


Giant cell tumors account for 5% of all bone tumors [1]. They usually sit on the long bones, in the epiphyseal situation in the adult and metaphyseal before the end of the growth [1]. The lower end of the femur is the preferred seat. The costal involvement represents less than 1% of cases [1,2] and most often occurs at the epiphysis of the head and tubercle [3]. The anterior chest wall is rarely involved [4-9].
