Tenosynovial giant cell tumor is the common term used to describe a group of soft-tissue tumors that share a common etiologic link. These tumors are relatively infrequent in the foot and ankle, and occasionally they may be the cause of destruction of the adjacent bone structures. We report the imaging appearance and pathologic findings of two patients with localized tenosynovial giant cell tumor of the forefoot. Both of these patients underwent surgical gross total resection. However, one of the patients experienced a recurrence. Their clinical, radiologic, and pathologic features, with their treatment protocol, are summarized retrospectively, and related literature is reviewed in an attempt to enhance the understanding of these tumor lesions. Clinicians should perform a careful preoperative and postoperative examination and complete tumor surgical resection with the aim of reducing local recurrence.
