Giant cell tumor of bone is a benign tumor composed of diffuse osteoclastic giant cells and mononuclear stromal cells. Giant cell tumor of small bones of hands and feet are different in behavior than Giant cell tumor of long bones. Giant cell tumor of toe is very rare (less than 2%), when it involve the toes, it more commonly affects younger age group and is more aggressive in nature. We report a case of Giant cell tumor of distal phalanx of great toe, which was difficult to differentiate radiologically with giant cell reparative granuloma. En bloc resection of the tumor was done and Giant cell tumor was confirmed on histopathology.
