We report the case of a 31-year-old woman who had had the distal end of the ulna resected for a giant cell tumour five years before presenting with a further one in the hamate. The medullary cavity of the hamate was curetted and cancellous bone grafted from the distal radius. Her symptoms resolved, and 26 months postoperatively the cortex of the hamate was fully restored.

Abstract

We report the case of a 31-year-old woman who had had the distal end of the ulna resected for a giant cell tumour five years before presenting with a further one in the hamate. The medullary cavity of the hamate was curetted and cancellous bone grafted from the distal radius. Her symptoms resolved, and 26 months postoperatively the cortex of the hamate was fully restored.
