an·eu·rys·mal bone cyst

[MIM*606179]
a solitary benign osteolytic lesion expanding a long bone or within a vertebra, consisting of blood-filled spaces, and separated by fibrous tissue containing multinucleated giant cells; may cause swelling, pain, and tenderness and compromise the structural integrity of the involved bone.

aneurysmal bone cyst

A tumour-like osteolytic lesion most commonly seen in patients age 10 to 20, more common in females, often located in the metaphysis of long bones, vertebrae and flat bones.

Imaging
Physaliferous (soap-bubble-like), osteolytic, eccentric expansion of bone with cortical erosion and destruction, and scant periosteal neo-osteogenesis.
 
Management
Curette bone defects, fill with bone chips.
