We report a case of a 67-year-old woman with giant cell tumor of the temporal bone. A 67-year-old woman presented with localized tenderness, swelling, sensory dysesthesia, dizziness, and headache over the left temporal bone. She was neurologically intact except left hearing impairment, with a nonmobile, tender, palpable mass over the left temporal area. A brain computed tomography(CT) scans showed a relatively well defined heterogenous soft tissue mass with multiple intratumoral cyst and radiolucent, osteolytic lesions involving the left temporal bone. The patient underwent a left frontotemporal craniotomy and zygoma osteotomy with total mass removal. Permanent histopathologic sections revealed a giant cell tumor. She remains well clinically and without tumor recurrence at 2 years after total resection.
