MSITHINI, T; LUKHELE, M  e  LINDA, Z. Telangiectatic osteosarcoma of the radius: A missed diagnosis case report. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.2, pp.49-51. ISSN 2309-8309.

Telangiectatic osteosarcoma is a rare variant of osteosarcoma accounting for 3%-11% of all primary osteosarcomas.1 It has well described distinctive radio-pathological features. Radiographically, these tumours appear as purely lytic destructive lesions located in the metaphyses of long bones. On gross clinical examination, it presents as a soft and cystic mass. Histologically findings are that of aneurysmally dilated spaces lined by osteoid-producing atypical stromal cells. This is a report on a patient with an atypical telangiectatic osteosarcoma which was missed by the primary treating medical team.

Palavras-chave : pathologic fracture; telangiectatic osteosarcoma; awareness.
