Giant cell tumor of bone is a benign but locally aggressive osteolytic neoplasm that represents 3% to 5% of all primary bone tumors, primarily found at the epiphyses of long bones. Less than 1% are of calvarial origin. Herein, we report a rare case of a nine-year-old girl with a hemorrhagic giant cell tumor of the left occipital skull base.
