Brown tumor is a focal lesion differentiated from other giant-cell tumors by the presence of hyperparathyroidism. Treatment of brown tumors must be initially directed towards correcting the hyperparathyroidism. Tumor regression may occur with resolution of the hyperparathyroidism. Persistent or large destructive tumors are treated with resection or curettage.
