Giant cell tumor of the bone is infrequent in the phalanges of the toes and is extremely rare in children. A case of giant cell tumor of the proximal phalanx of the big toe on the left foot in a 12-year-old boy is reported. The tumor was treated by partial resection of the phalanx and repair of the osseous defect with an autologous iliac crest graft. A literature review showed few cases of giant cell tumor at this site.
