Giant cell tumor (osteoclastoma) of pelvis is rare entity. Most of these have average size of 9.5cm. We here present a massive osteoclastoma involving pubis and periacetabular region to such an extent that surgical excision could not be done. Our surgical intervention was aimed to correct the associated deformity and improve function by debulking the part of tumor responsible for mechanical symptoms and deformity.
