A retrospective study of aneurysmal bone cyst (ABCs) of the rib was conducted to review their clinical, radiological and pathological features, as well as the early and long-term results of surgical management. From 2000 through 2010, 5 patients (3 male, 2 female, aged 17-40 years) with ABCs of the rib were treated in our department. All patients with aneurysmal bone cyst (ABCs) of the rib diagnosed radiologically and confirmed histologically. Surgical treatment consisted of wide resection in all patients with the use of synthetic mesh in two cases. There was no perioperative mortality. Follow-up at 1-10 years revealed no local recurrence. All aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) of the rib should be treated by wide resection with tumor-free margins in order to provide the best chance for cure.
