Abstract
Unicameral bone cysts (UBCs) are benign, osteolytic lesions which are often asymptomatic and are commonly seen in the proximal of humerus and femur. We report such a lesion in a eleven years old boy who presented to orthopedic clinic with a 10 months history of painful limping.Clinic, radiographic and pathologic findings and cyst aspiration evocated solitary bone cyst. Child was treated successfully with repeated intralesional steroid injection.
