CATALAN, Julian et al. Giant cell tumor of bone: clinical and radiographic aspects of 115 cases. Radiol Bras [online]. 2006, vol.39, n.2, pp.119-122. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842006000200009.

OBJECTIVE: To review clinical and radiographic findings in patients with histologically confirmed giant cell tumor of bone. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Clinical and radiological data of 115 patients with giant cell tumor of bone were analyzed. RESULTS: Of the evaluated cases, 57.4% (66) were female and 80% (92) were white. The patients were 30 years old in average and the most common site of the lesions was the distal femoral metaphysis, in 22.6% (26). The most common radiographic aspect was a purely lytic lesion, in 63.7% (51) of the cases. CONCLUSION: Giant cell tumor of bone is not an uncommon tumor, predominant in the white race, with radiological findings well established.
