Description: A neurysmal bone cyst is a benign but locally destructive lesion of the bone characterized by presence of spongy or multiloculated cystic tissue filled with blood. It accounts for 2.5% of all bone tumours. Eighty percent of aneurysmal bone cysts occur in skeletally immature patients who are under age 20 years.1 There is no sex predilection; the peak in- cidence is in the second decade of life.
