Abstract

The authors report an extremely rare case: a bony giant cell tumour in the temporo-sphenoidal region presenting with hearing loss and vertigo. The main characteristics of these tumours are given, together with a literature review. This is the 5th published case of this tumour in the temporo-sphenoidal region. The treatment of these tumours is essentially surgical, and the authors emphasise the use of Sekhar's approach.
