The present work emphasizes upon rare occurrence of giant osteoblastoma of lumbar spine (L4) in a 10-year old male child reporting to our spine clinic. He presented with back pain and visible swelling on flexion over back which disappeared on extension. He was evaluated clinically and radiologically. There was no neurological deficit. Tumor resection was done by posterior approach. The diagnosis was confirmed histopathologically. Postoperatively, pain disappeared completely. The purpose is to highlight such delayed presentations in developing countries and the importance of early diagnosis.
