The results of using segmental cortical autogenous bone grafts to reconstruct defects created by resection of tumors were analyzed in forty patients. Thirty-three patients had dual grafts while seven had a single fibular graft. Dual grafts were used for major bones (humerus, femur, and tibia without fibula) while single grafts were used for the radius and(More)
Since their original description by Virchow, simple bone cysts have been studied repeatedly. Although these defects are not true neoplasms, simple bone cysts may create major structural defects of the humerus, femur, and os calcis. They are commonly discovered incidentally when x-rays are taken for other reasons or on presentation due to a pathologic(More)
Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is usually a self-limited illness, though atypical presentations of infection with Bartonella henselae can occur, including osteomyelitis, oculoglandular syndrome, and granulomatous hepatitis. We describe a 6-year-old boy who had atypical CSD osteomyelitis of the left proximal femoral metaphysis due to a cat scratch. This is the(More)
Conventional wisdom suggests that giant cell tumor (GCT) does not occur in the skeletally immature individual; however, we believe that GCTs of bone, though rare, do occur in children. We are reporting the occurrence of GCT of bone in three patients who were skeletally immature at the time of their initial presentation. In our review of the reports since(More)
Proliferative conditions involving blood vessels and masses that mimic vascular tumors can present to hand surgeons. Patient age at presentation can range from neonates with congenital tumors to adults with malignancies, such as angiosarcoma. This article reviews three basic categories of vascular tumors in the upper extremity: benign, congenital,and(More)
