Giant cell tumours are common bone tumours usually\ud benign which arise at the metaphysis and extend\ud towards the epiphysis of bone. A case of giant cell\ud tumour in the distal humerus which is a rare site is\ud presented here. Radiological investigations and biopsy\ud in a 20 year old male who presented to our orthopedic\ud department with elbow pain, led to a diagnosis of giant\ud cell tumour at the medial epicondyle of humerus.\ud Literature is reviewed regarding the common sites of\ud giant cell tumours along with the treatment modalities\ud currently followed. Giant cell tumour should be kept in\ud a mind as a rare cause of elbow pain
