Abstract: Case report of a female patient with giant cell tumor (GCT) in the sacral region with previous treatment with intralesional curettage and placement of a bone cement filler presenting local recurrence 12 months after surgery. Adjuvant therapy with Denosumab combined with en bloc resection of the GCT in the sacral region was used. A posterior approach was performed allowing direct exposure, plus bone allograft placement, with favorable postoperative functional results. Clinical results are discussed to conclude the ideal surgical protocol.
