Giant cell tumor (GCT) is generally treated with wide surgical excision, but the local bone tissue dysfunction is a major complication. Here, we report a sternum GCT patient who had previously undergone a mastectomy. The tumor was excised, and the patient accepted chest wall reconstruction. The patient recovered well and suffered no recurrence at the first year follow-up.
