Giant cell tumours are locally aggressive benign bone lesions with typical imaging features. Giant cell tumours can affect virtually any part of the body, but tend to be situated in the appendicular skeleton, with the axial skeleton being an uncommon site of occurrence. This report is of four patients with axial giant cell tumour, two involving the thoracic spine, one involving the sacrum, and one involving the temporal bone, with corresponding clinical presentations and imaging findings.
