ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Giant Cell Tumor

History: 56 year old male with a history of painful enlarging mass in the left knee.

Findings: There is a large mass in the proximal tibia, most likely centered in the epiphysis, measuring 10 x 10cm. The mass is eccentric and has a narrow zone of transition. It abutts the articular surface. There is adjacent bony replacement. No tumor matrix is noted.

Ddx: Giant Cell Tumor

No MeSH data available.


Whole body bone images reveal diffuse, asymmetrically increased uptake in the entire left lower extremity, consistent with hyperemia.  There is a large photopenic defect within the proximal left tibia with surrounding soft tissue uptake corresponding to the x-ray findings.  In addition, there is intensely increased uptake surrounding the periphery of the photopenic defect, consistent with bone remodeling at the advancing edge of the tumor.
