Recurrent giant cell tumor over a 23-year period



Recurrent giant cell tumor over a 23-year period



Annals of Plastic Surgery 39(6): 659-661



Giant cell tumor recurrence is certainly not an uncommon event. In fact, recurrence rates as high as 50% have been reported. When recurrence does occur, it is usually within several years of the original tumor excision, if not sooner. The present report illustrates the recurrence of such a lesion twice over a 23-year period and serves to remind one that despite all attempts at complete excision, recurrence of giant cell tumor may still occur even decades following the initial resection.
