Giant cell tumours (GCT) of bone are infrequently encountered in craniofacial skeleton and require careful evaluation to differentiate it from other giant cell lesions. The management of these tumours is ofter complicated, as complex anatomy of the region makes complete resection difficult and lesion has significant recurrence rate. Loco regionally advanced disease makes complete resection even more challenging. Here, a case of locoregionally advanced GCT maxilla in 37-year-old female is reported. The patient was successfully managed with complete resection and reconstruction of orbital floor using temporalis muscle flap sling. Key Messages: Giant cell tumours of head and neck are rare. However, they require careful evaluation to differentiate it from other similar lesions and a comprehensive management, considering their recurrent nature and probable malignant transformation.
