[Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of bone 20 years after femoral fracture treated by plate-screw fixation: analysis of corrosion products and their role in malignancy].

Abstract

We report a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the bone that developed 20 years after a femoral fracture treated by plate-screw fixation. Similar cases reported over the past fifteen years in the literature suggest the possible mechanisms of sarcomatous degeneration. The possible carcinogenic effect of corrosion products is emphasized.
