Historically, for giant cell tumors of bone tumors, large resections and reconstructions by mutilating surgery were common and reported recurrence rates were low and around 5%. Currently, Denosumab neoadjuvant therapy in these tumors facilitates complete resection and can avoid mutilating surgery. In low-income countries, the management of advanced giant cell tumors of bone remains challenge because of their sometimes very monstrous volume in patients unable to afford drug treatments by Denosumab. In this work, we present a case of large distal femur GCT managed temporarily by filling-pseudo-arthrodesis after large segmental resection.
