Tumor-to-tumor metastasis in the same bone is an extremely rare condition. Limited number of case reports exists for coincidence of benign and malign neoplasms but none for malignant to malignant metastasis. Occurrence of several individual malignancies in the same patient may eventually cause such coexistences. We report an Ollier's disease patient with malignant transformation to chondrosarcoma complicated by a pathologic fracture and eventually whose pathological examination revealed that the lesion was not only the chondrosarcoma but an accompanying metastasis from existing lung adenocarcinoma...

We present a 13-month-old boy who had a successful Computed Tomography (CT) guided percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatment for the osteoid osteoma (OO) on proximal part of the tibial diaphysis. The complaints of the patient were being restless due to pain and refusing to bear any weight on his left leg for 6 months. An asymmetrical cortical thickening and a focal sclerosis was detected on medial proximal diaphysis of the left tibia on radiographs and axial T2-weighted STIR-MR image showed bone marrow and soft-tissue edema with low-signal-intensity nidus due to central calcification with a high-signal-intensified unmineralized periphery...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to present preliminary result of one portal endoscopic assisted release of first dorsal compartment at wrist in a case series with de Quervain disease as a minimal invasive surgical method. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The patients, who underwent an endoscopic-assisted release of the first extensor compartment for de Quervain's disease by same hand surgeon between 2015 and 2017, were retrospectively analyzed. Operative treatment was considered if the patients did not respond to non-operative treatment including oral anti-inflammatory medications, splinting, and steroid injection...

Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH), also known as Masson's tumor or vegetant intravascular hemangioendothelioma, is a reactive condition representing an exuberant organization and recanalization of a thrombus. It can occur in normal blood vessels or in vascular malformations, perhaps in response to blood vessel injury or thrombosis. In this report, we present the diagnostic and therapeutic courses of a 55 year-old woman and an 18 year-old man, who had a progressive protruding hand mass following a hand contusion...

OBJECTIVES: This paper aims to evaluate the extremity function and vascular outcome after limb-sparing surgery for extremity musculoskeletal tumors invading vascular structure required reconstruction. METHODS: Of the 507 patients with musculoskeletal tumors, who underwent surgery between 2004 and 2007, 17 (3,3%) patients with major vessel involvement were included in the study. The mean age was 37.8 ± 14.5, with a female/male ratio of 8/9. Thirteen (76.4%) patients had Stage IIb disease, and 2 (11,7%) patients had Stage III disease...

OBJECTIVE: Chondroblastoma is a benign aggressive tumor which needs surgical treatment and has a recurrence rate up to 35%. Extended (aggressive) curettage is the mainstay of treatment and local adjuvants have been reported to decrease the recurrence rate. METHODS: The recurrence rates and the functional results of 14 patients who were treated in our institution and 2 other patients who were treated elsewhere between the years 2004-2016 were evaluated. Seventeen cases (13 male, 3 female; mean age: 17...
