The vascular architecture of bone giant cell tumor was observed histologically with resin cast technique and scanning electron microscopy. Three types of capillaries were noted in the tumor tissue: extruding club-like capillary in the outer zone of the tumor; sinusoid capillary running disorderly in the intermediate zone; cecum capillary in the central zone. The pattern of vascular structure was believed to be correlated with tumor growth.
