A simple bone cyst is an intramedullary cyst usually filled with serous and serosanguinous fluid. We hereby present a case of a 16-year-old male patient with simple bone cyst with pathological fracture of left humerus, who underwent extensive curettage of the lesion followed by incorporation of autogenous nonvascularized fibular strut-graft taken from ipsilateral limb. Simple bone cyst complicated with pathological fracture may be treated with cortical bone grafting with fibular strut-graft and synthetic fillers. Additional internal fixation with suitable implant is required to fix the pathological fracture. Therefore, by this methodology, we can take care of the disease and its complications as well in a same sitting reducing patient's morbidity.
