Description

CASE: A 32-year-old pregnant woman presented with new wrist pain after a fall. She had undergone surgical repair to the same wrist 6 years previously for a distal radius fracture. At that time, there was no evidence of a bone lesion. Current radiographs revealed a radiolucent lesion in the metaepiphyseal region. Intraoperative frozen section confirmed a giant cell tumor (GCT). Definitive management consisted of intralesional curettage, burring, and cementation of the distal radius with reapplication of distal radius plate. CONCLUSION: Currently, there is no known link between GCT and fracture or pregnancy.
