BOSI, Thiago Carneiro da Cunha et al. Lung metastasis of benign giant cell tumor: a case report. Radiol Bras [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.3, pp. 207-209. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842008000300015.
Giant cell tumor is the sixth most frequent primary bone neoplasm, affecting long bone metaphysis, most frequently in young adults. On radiological images, this tumor appears as a lytic, well-defined, eccentric lesion. The authors report a case of benign giant cell tumor in a patient who presented with lung metastases five years after undergoing resection of the primary tumor.
