Aneurysmal bone cyst being locally destructive tumour, any bone can be involved. Due to its aggressiveness and cortical thinning can lead to pathological fracture. We reported a case of 20-year-old female patient with proximal femur aneurysmal bone cyst leading to pathological fracture which required surgical intervention. Patient was admitted and evaluated with radiographs and MRI, fracture was fixed with proximal femur locking compression plate (PFLCP) and curettage of the lesion was done followed by cancellous bone grafting. On follow up patient had excellent outcome with near normal range of movements.
