Abstract: Giant cell tumour of the distal ulna is considered more aggressive resulting in to inferior oncological and functional outcome after conventional treatment methods. We are reporting a case of giant cell tumour of campanacci stage 3 ocurring at distal end of ulna of dominant extremity in a 40-years-old female. She was treated with enblock resection of distal ulna with patient specific custom made distal ulnar prosthesis with reconstruction of distal radio ulnar joint using extensor carpi ulnaris tendon. After 24 months of followup there is no local or distant recurrence. Functionally paitent is having 900supination, 800 pronation, 800 extension and 700flexion of right wrist. To validate our study there has to be large series involving significant number of patients.
