Abstract


Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath (GCTTS) is a relatively common soft tissue neoplasm arising from the tendon sheaths of upper and lower extremities. However, the incidence of GCTTS at multiple sites is not yet reported in literature which is extremely rare. Here we are reporting a case of a 21 year female presenting with slow growing, firm swellings on bilateral elbow and tendoachilis region. Fine needle aspiration was done from all the sites which revealed the features of GCTTS. This case highlights the unusual multicentric presentation of GCTTS.
