Pathologic fracture of a giant cell tumour of the patella

This report describes a pathologic fracture of the patella secondary to destruction by a giant cell tumour. Diagnosis was made after non-union of a patella fracture, with osteolysis and soft tissue invasion. Delayed union of any fracture should raise the possibility of an underlying pathologic process.
