Aneurysmal bone cysts are enigmatic, locally destructive, blood filled lesions of bone with unknown cause and unusual presentations. We report a case of 16 year old female with aggressive aneurysmal bone cyst of proximal left femur complicated by transcervical fracture neck of femur. As the age of the patient was not suitable for replacement, a successful attempt was made to salvage the hip with intralesional curettage and fixation with 2 fibular struts and a cancellous hip screw. Femoral head is viable till date.
Keywords : Bone Cysts, Femur, Fibula, Hip Joint, Curettage.
