Giant Cell tumour (GCT) or Osteoclastoma is a benign locally aggressive tumour with a tendency for local recurrence. Long tubular bones (75-90%) are frequent sites of involvement. GCT constitutes 5% of all primary bone tumours. Metachronous multicentric giant cell tumour of bone is a rare entity. Multicentric GCT, in contrast to unifocal GCT, has a tendency(More)
Giant cell tumor (GCT) is a benign locally aggressive tumor with a tendency for local recurrence. GCT of metatarsal is of rare occurrence with very few cases reported so far. GCT in this location is rare and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a destructive bony lesion in both skeletally immature and mature patients. We report the case of(More)
Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant non-osteogenic primary tumor of the bone. It is one of the most common primary malignant tumors of bone. Peak incidence is noticed in second decade of life with male preponderance of 1.6:1. It occurs most frequently in long bones and flat bones of pelvic girdles. In 30% cases, Ewing's sarcoma is multicentric in origin. In(More)
Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of bone (PLB) is a rare entity. Patients generally present with localized bone pain and, less frequently, soft-tissue swelling or a palpable mass. Pathological fracture of the proximal femur and proximal humerus secondary to soft-tissue tumours is well documented in the literature; however, lymphomas presenting primarily at(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the use of fibular grafting for fresh femoral neck fractures with posterior comminution. METHODS 18 women and 15 men aged 20 to 60 years underwent osteosynthesis and fibular strut grafting supplemented with 7.0-mm cannulated hip screws for Garden grades III (n=21) and IV (n=12) femoral neck fractures associated with posterior(More)
Nevertheless, we have a few concerns which we would like to share. • Article title involves the terminology PF fractures, but as we go through the article the fractures included in the study were 18 subtrochanteric fractures and two cases of ipsilateral fracture neck and shaft femur.1 Moreover, the authors have excluded the nonunion intertrochanteric(More)
Aneurysmal bone cyst is a benign usually expansile, solitary lytic lesion of bone; with blood filled cystic cavities, which tend to grow eccentrically. Such eccentric growth may, on occasion, attain considerable size before it is clinically recognized, particularly if the tumor arises in a deeply situated bone. Aneurysmal bone cyst of pubis is a rare(More)
BACKGROUND Management of malignant bone and soft tissue tumors remains an overwhelming confront to orthopedic surgeons. The challenge is discriminating in developing countries due to inadequate diagnostic and therapeutic amenities and unawareness. A lot has been discussed about the neglected orthopedic trauma, but the published literature on the causes and(More)
