We report a case of giant cell tumor that occurred in the proximal tibia of a 52-year-old man 13 years after bone-patella-bone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The tumor was at the site of the metal interference screw. We discuss the differential diagnosis of proximal tibia lesions that occur after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and the importance of recognizing potentially life-threatening sports tumors.
