Introduction: Giant cell tumour (GCT) of distal radius bone is a relatively common tumour with a high rate of recurrence. This tumour is locally aggressive and may occasionally undergo malignant transformation. Treatment of this type of tumour consists of wide resection of the involved segment of the bone to reduce the incidence of local recurrence while preserving maximal function. Bone reconstruction and functional restoration of the joint could be carried out using autogenous bone grafts, allografts or using custom made prosthesis.

Methodology: The following clinical report describes the fabrication and use of a customized interim acrylic (PMMA) bone prosthesis for the reconstruction of distal radius bone following resective tumour surgery during the initial period of 1 to 5 years to rule out the chances of recurrence before undertaking vascularized fibular bone grafts or allografts as a means of definitive reconstruction.

Conclusion: This clinical report describes the use of heat cure acrylic bone prosthesis for providing an innovative and economical interim prosthetic reconstruction option for patient with recurrent GCT of long bones.
