Patellar neoplasms are rare. Patella is an uncommon site for giant cell tumour. We report a rare presentation of giant cell tumour of the patella in a thirty year old female manual labourer who presented with pain and swelling of the knee. The first clinical symptom was anterior knee pain. The tumour mass restricted her daily activities. We present a case of this rare entity along with its clinical and radiographic features. To relieve her of her symptoms she was operated and the tumour mass was excised. Autogenous and synthetic graft mix was used to pack the defect. At the end of one year follow up patient is pain free and is able to carry her daily activities.
