Abstract

Many neoplasms of the soft tissues feature giant cells, but this article covers entities in which giant cells are a striking feature. Specifically, we consider tenosynovial giant cell tumor (localized and diffuse types; giant cell tumor of tendon sheath, and pigmented villonodular tenosynovitis), reticulohistiocytoma, juvenile xanthogranuloma, giant cell fibroblastoma (a variant form of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans), giant cell angiofibroma (which is essentially a giant cell-rich form of solitary fibrous tumor), and phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor.
