Giant Cell Tumour (GCT) which is a locally aggressive benign bone tumour with malignant potential rarely occurs in metatarsal. We present a case of GCT of first metatarsal bone in a 26 year old male with incidentally diagnosed diabetes mellitus. He was treated with excision of entire first metatarsal and reconstruction of the defect with freshly harvested autogenous ipsilateral fibula graft and its arthrodesis with medial cuneiform proximally & proximal phalanx distally. Regular follow up shows incorporation of fibular graft with good functional outcome of foot and no recurrence.
