The brown tumor also known as osteitis fibrosa cystica or Von Recklinghausen's disease of bone is a reactive nonneoplastic giant cell lesion associated with hyperparathyroidism.
In 1903 Max Askanazy, a pathologist in Geneva, discovered a parathyroid tumour at the post mortem of a patient with this disease, (also called Von Recklinghausen's disease of bone), but, interestingly enough, he made no association between the two.
