Abstract: The patella is a rare site of primary tumors. Tumors in the patella represent 0.12% of all bone tumors. Majority of tumors are benign [1]. The most frequent benign patellar tumor is giant cell tumor (GCT). Here, we present case report of a giant cell tumor (GCT) occurring in the patella in a 32-year-old woman, who had presented to the Orthopaedic Department of B.P. Koirala Institute of Health Sciences, Dharan, Nepal with the complaint of occasional right anterior knee pain and swelling for 1year. Considering its rarity and unique characteristics, we thought that this case needs to be reported. In this part of world (Nepal) patients commonly present late to the hospital.
