Dr. Pradeep Patel | Dr. K. K. Pandey [2] | Dr. D. Peepra [2] | Dr. U. Katakwar [2]

Abstract: We present a case of aneurysmal bone cyst of the first metatarsal, which has been documented rarely in the literature. Its characteristics are similar to those of a variety of different bone tumours. While the radiographic appearance of this lesion frequently identifies it, microscopic examination is required for a definitive diagnosis. Depending on the size, age, and location of the lesion, there are a variety of therapeutic options available. In this report, we recommend total excision of the lesion and reconstruction of the defect by transfer of fibular segment. We obtained satisfactory clinical and radiological results, after 6 months of postoperative evaluation.
