Indeed, it has been proven that sarcomas develop from chronic infarct of the long bone, the incidence of which has been reported to be 1% of all bone sarcomas [3,4]. To date about 60 cases of infarct associated sarcomas (IAS) have been fi led in the world literature. The pathogenesis of IAS is not established although… CONTINUE READING
