    Abstract

    A rare case of an aggressive recurrent giant cell tumour of axis is presented. The problems encountered in diagnosis and management are discussed. High dose dexamethasone was found to be useful managing this inoperable aggressive tumour which was compressing the cord. Early diagnosis would facilitate wide excision of the tumour with good prognosis.
