It is not a true cyst as it lacks an epithelial lining.

bone cyst

A local thinning and expansion of bone with a fluid-filled centre. Solitary bone cysts sometimes occur during the growth period. They may also be caused by tumours, especially the benign OSTEOCLASTOMAS. Bone cysts are usually unsuspected until the bone suddenly breaks on the application of a minor force.
