Introduction: Giant cell tumor is a benign but locally aggressive tumor typically found in the epiphysis of long bones. Patients are usually females typically presenting between ages 30 and 50. Confirm diagnosis is based on biopsy. Treatment includes radiation therapy, bisphosphonates, denosumab, extensive curettage with adjuvant treatment, and reconstruction. We managed our case by en bloc resection of the tumor with wrist arthrodesis with fibula bone. Result: The patient had a good functional grip with 80° of pronation and 60° of supination. Conclusion: Resection of the tumor along with ipsilateral nonvascularized fibular strut graft with wrist arthrodesis is a good option for wrist reconstruction and provides a good forearm function and strength.
