Abstract

Hand is an unusual location for aneurysmal bone cysts. A case in whom the second metacarpal of the left hand was presented. Because of its rapidly growing nature, a radical excision was performed. The resected segment was replaced by a bicortical iliac crest graft. The graft healed without complications, and result was functional. On the follow-up at the 36th month no sign of relapse was found.

Résumé

La main est un site inhabituel pour les kystes anévrysmaux osseux. Un cas d’atteinte du 2ème métacarpien fait l’objet de notre présentation. En raison d’une croissance rapide, une résection radicale fut réalisée. La partie réséquée fut remplacée par un greffon provenant de la crête iliaque. La greffe guérit sans complications et le résultat fonctionnel fut bon. Après 36 mois aucune récidive n’a été constatée.
