Giant cell tumors is a primary benign bone tumors but with a tendency for significant local bone destruction, recurrence, and occasionally, distant metastasis. Most metastases are to the lungs but rarely metastases to the regional lymph nodes, the scalp, and the pelvis have been reported. Giant cell tumor in the elderly are very rare; and to the best of our knowledge, there is no prior report on concomitant pulmonary, scapular and rib metastases from giant cell tumor in the elderly in the literature at the moment. Hence, a case in a 65-year-old woman is presented.
