Abstract

Giant cell tumours of the femoral head and neck treated at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre between 1970 and 1982 were reviewed to evaluate the effectiveness of primary treatment by curettage and bone grafting. All 4 cases recurred within two years, necessitating the likelihood of recurrence following curettage and bone grafting, particularly at this anatomical site, is stressed, and the possibility that hip replacement arthroplasty be considered the primary treatment of choice is discussed.
