Giant cell reparative granuloma (GCRG) is a benign osteolytic lesion of unclear etiology, commonly affecting the maxilla and mandible. These lesions which may occur as an inflammatory response due to intraosseous hemorrhage following trauma, rarely occur in the temporal bone. Here we present a case of a 38-year-old female patient who presented with a swelling in the left pre-auricular area, involving the squamous temporal bone. She underwent a curettage of the lesion which on histopathological examination led to diagnosis of GCRG. A follow-up of 6 months indicated no recurrence.
