Abstract

Aneurysmal Bone Cyst (ABC) is a benign bone tumour characterized by expansile and lytic nature which located in the intramedullary field and first named in 1942. Although benign, the ABC can be locally aggressive. Its expansile nature can cause pain, swelling, deformity, disruption of growth plates or joint surfaces. It constitutes 1% of all bone tumors, most commonly seen in children and adolescents. Almost all bones can be involved, but long bone metaphyses and vertebrae are the most common sites of involvement. Among all flat bones, the clavicle is one of the rare sites where tumors or tumor-like lesions are seen, and it is one of the very rare settlements in terms of ABC. In this study, we present a rare case of an 8-year-old patient who was surgically treated with an aneurysmal bone cyst located in the right clavicle, resembling a solitary bone cyst with a Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI).
