They were described in 1893 by Van Arsdale, who called these lesions "homerus ossifying haematoma". In 1940 Ewing used the term "aneurismal" to describe these lesions. Jaffé and Lichtenstein first coined the term "aneurismal cyst" in 1942 In 1950 they modified this term to "aneurismal bone cyst". They may be associated with bone tumors.
