Epithelioid sarcoma is an infrequent tumour, especially in upper limb, which nerve spread is not common. We describe the case of a 27 years old caucasian male with initial diagnosis of Dupuytren's disease.

Fourty two patients with tenosynovial giant cell tumour, treated with radical excision, underwent detailed follow-up to evaluate the outcomes and to find early the possible recurrence of disease. Radical excision is the only way to have a complete recovery from disease and total recovery of function. Early diagnosis of recurrence is possible by careful(More)
