Abstract: Recurrence of giant cell tumors of the tendon sheath in the hand has continued to be a problem since it was first described. Authors have tried to identify factors to predict the chance of recurrence and have found several. This paper reports our experience with resection of GCTTS in the hand, and the predisposing factors of recurrence were studied. The recurrence rate of 16 % is similar to that of earlier published results. The predisposing factors for recurrence such as pressure erosion on X-ray and presence of degenerative changes could not be confirmed.
