Giant cell tumor is a benign but locally aggressive tumor with common recurrence. Most cases occur around the knee joint. Giant cell tumor of the foot is rare and very few cases involving the first metatarsal have been reported. Its characteristics and treatment in adult patients remain unclear. This paper reports a case of recurrent giant cell tumor at the first metatarsal that was excised surgically and subsequently reconstructed with non-vascularized fibula graft.
