A giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath (GCTT) predominantly affects the tendon sheaths or joints of the fingers and toes. Less common sites include large joints such as the ankle and knee joint. We describe a case of a 35-year-old female with a localized giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath that uniquely originated from the deep infrapatellar bursa.
