Paget's disease (PD) of the bone is a disorder of bone remodelling that may be polyostotic or monostotic. Although development of a sarcoma in PD is well-recognised, it is less well recognised that pseudosarcomas in bone and soft tissue can also arise in this condition. In this report we document the case of a large giant-cell-rich pseudotumour that developed in the tibia and overlying soft tissues in a case of polyostotic PD. Bone and soft tissues were highly vascular and contained abundant haemorrhage with focal areas of new bone formation and a diffuse infiltrate of osteoclastic giant cells. The lesion has not recurred or produced metastases 3 years after removal. Clinicians should be aware that a benign giant-cell-rich pseudotumour can develop in PD and that it needs to be distinguished from other giant-cell-rich tumours.
