A large aneurysmal bone cyst of the upper tibia in a 17-year-old patient was treated by superselective embolization with excellent clinical and radiological results. Extensive curettage and detailed pathologic analysis performed 2 years following embolization revealed only healing bone. The presented case and reviewed cases in the literature indicate that embolization is a promising method for definitive therapy of the aneurysmal bone cyst.
