Patients present with increasingly severe bone pain.
The radiographs shown here are of a 35 year old recently married auto mechanic whose wife had just had their first baby. He presented with severe pain in the distal femur. The initial work-up revealed multiple lesions in both lower extremities, including a lesion in the mid-diaphysis of the ipsilateral tibia and two lesions in the contralateral femur. A CT scan of the chest showed pulmonary nodules. Biopsy showed high-grade angiosarcoma of bone.
Multiple, lytic, aggressive appearing lesions in a bone or adjacent bones.
Wide surgical resection and ajuvant therapy.
