Giant cell reparative granulomas (GCRGs) are non-neoplastic inflammatory lesions, usually observed in the maxilla, mandible or small bones of the hands and feet. These lesions present a wide range of morphology and the misinterpretation with other giant cell lesions can often occur. We report the case of a 47-year-old woman with GCRG in the left scapula, presenting some uncommon features: the location (scapula) and age at presentation, the lack of underlying bone disease such as Paget's disease or fibrous dysplasia, the large aggressive expansile aspect of the lesion. This was a therapeutic study, level IV (case series with no or a historical control group).

Abstract

Giant cell reparative granulomas (GCRGs) are non-neoplastic inflammatory lesions, usually observed in the maxilla, mandible or small bones of the hands and feet. These lesions present a wide range of morphology and the misinterpretation with other giant cell lesions can often occur. We report the case of a 47-year-old woman with GCRG in the left scapula, presenting some uncommon features: the location (scapula) and age at presentation, the lack of underlying bone disease such as Paget's disease or fibrous dysplasia, the large aggressive expansile aspect of the lesion. This was a therapeutic study, level IV (case series with no or a historical control group).
