Giant cell tumour (GCT) constitutes about 5 % of all skeletal tumors. They rarely occur in the skull. When involved, they preferentially involve the sphenoid or temporal bones. Skull-base GCTs generally present with multiple cranial nerves involvement, most commonly sixth followed by the third cranial nerve. We describe a case of clival GCT presenting with an isolated trigeminal nerve involvement in a 19-year-old man which was managed by surgery and adjuvant radiation. At 18 months of follow-up, the patient is clinically asymptomatic. Clival GCT should also be considered in the differential diagnosis of any isolated trigeminal nerve palsy. Adjuvant radiation has an important role to play in managing this tumour.
