Seven aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC) were treated with the hormone calcitonin. Six of the cysts, which were hypovascular responded well to the calcitonin administered directly into the cyst. Ossification and rebuilding of the ABC occurred after some months in every case. One hypervascularized ABC, however, failed to respond either to embolotherapy or to the calcitonin hormone treatment. The authors recommend calcitonin administration as a useful non-invasive method for the treatment of hypovascular ABC.
