Diplopia is very rarely reported in giant cell granuloma of midface involving orbital floor. Thorough, ophthalmic examination should be performed in giant cell granuloma in midface region for diplopia to prevent further worsening & postoperative morbidity. Although, it is a benign disease process, it can also be locally destructive. Surgery is the traditional and still the most accepted treatment for giant cell granuloma. The case described here involved the maxilla which was treated with surgical curettage with a follow-up period of 1 year with no recurrence.
