ABSTRACT
True giant cell tumors are uncommon. They arise most frequently in the long bones and vertebral localization is much less common, particularly in spinal canal. The authors experienced and observed a case of giant cell tumor in lumbosacral spinal canal with a origin of the sacrum. A 25 year old female patient, suffering from severe low back pain associated with radiation pain to posterior aspect of both legs, was diagnosed as a giant cell tumor and treated with total laminectomy with radical removal of mass and radiotherapy resulting in good prognosis. And the literatures were reviewed.
