Pathologically, “giant cell tumor” is a general term for osteoclast-like multinucleated giant cells and is roughly divided into the categories of osteoclastoma and giant cell tumor. Osteoclastomas occur most often in the long bones of the limbs but in rare cases can occur in the cranium. Giant cell tumors that occur in the cranium are reportedly most common in the sphenoid bone. Here we report the case of a female patient with a giant cell tumor that occurred in the bone of the paranasal sinus during childhood, and who, after undergoing resection surgery, underwent multiple additional removal surgeries, during the course of which she experienced optic nerve atrophy in both eyes.
