2.  Giant cell tumour in the diaphysis of radius – a report 
Cases Journal  2008;1:106.
Background
We present a case of a 35 yrs old female who presented with swelling over her forearm. This is a rare case of a giant cell tumour in a nonepiphyseal region.
Methods
Case report and presentation of clinical, radiological and histological data on single case of giant cell tumour of diaphysis of radius.
Results
Although age, clinical features and radiological features are helpful, it is still the histology that helps to clinch the diagnosis.
Conclusion
A thorough literature search and an exhaustive online search using various search engines revealed seven reported cases of giant cell tumours in the diaphysis of long bones. We reiterate the fact that irrespective of the location, a giant cell tumour should be diagnosed based on its histology.
