Giant cell tumor (GCT) of the distal radius accounts for 10% of skeletal GCTs, next to distal femur and proximal tibia. It has high propensity for recurrence. Treatment consists of extended curettage or en bloc resection of the lesion with subsequent reconstructions. We report a case of a 31-year-old female with recurrence of tumor in the well-united grafted ipsilateral fibula used for reconstruction of the wrist after excision of GCT in the left distal radius. Surgical plan of the ulnar translocation was changed to carpus centralization and wrist arthrodesis due to intraoperative radial artery injury. Computed tomographic angiography must be done before planning as single artery is contraindicated for ulnar translocation.
