Abstract: Giant cell tumour (GCT) of the bone conventionally occurs in the epiphyses of long bones. Their incidence in craniofacial skeleton is atypical, constituting only about only 2% in the head and neck region. Their occurrence in paediatric age groups has been seldomly described. Here, we report a case of GCT maxilla in a 6 year old child who presented with oral exophytic lesion. The mass was excised via sub labial approach under general anaesthesia with no recurrence in the follow up period. GCT of head and neck region in paediatric age group is not aggressive and simple excision with follow up is only required.
