Benign fibrous histiocytoma is a rare tumor that most commonly involves the wing of ileum. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. The olecranon process of the ulna is an uncommon site. We report a 35-yr-old female who presented with swelling in the elbow region including the forearm, a condition since two years. The radiological findings suggested a diagnosis of a giant cell tumor but the histological findings supported a diagnosis of benign fibrous histiocytoma. Resection of the tumor and reconstruction of the elbow was done with the fibula as a spacer due to wdisinclination of the patient for a custom-made prosthesis.
