Abstract

We report a case of giant cell tumour (GCT) of the hamate treated by acrylic cementation. It has not recurred 3 years after surgery, and no functional impairment has been observed. We have reviewed previously reported cases of GCTs in the hamate and discuss the best management to prevent recurrence while maintaining function.
