OBJECTIVE: Aneurysmal Bone Cyst (ABC) is a cystic lesion of bone, occurring in 70% of cases as a primary lesion. Even if the metaphyseal region of long bones is more frequently involved, vertebral localization is not rare: ABC represents 15% of all primary spine and sacral tumours. Selective arterial embolization (SAE) represents the first treatment option for vertebral ABC. However, in few cases, multiple SAEs are not possible. The aim of this work is to report two cases of vertebral ABC unresponsive to SAE positively treated with Denosumab...

Hibernoma is a benign adipose tumour that contains foetal brown fat cells. We report a case of hibernoma arising in the left ischium of a 65-year-old female with a past history of ovarian carcinoma. The patient presented with a relatively short history of left sacral/hip pain. Radiologically, the lesion, which was large (5 cm) and sclerotic, had been stable for a number of years. Histologically, it was composed mainly of plump cells with foamy, multivacuolated cytoplasm. These cells showed no reaction for epithelial, melanoma or leucocyte markers but expressed FABP4/aP2 and S100, indicating that they were brown fat cells...

INTRODUCTION: Peripheral nerve tumours are rarely acknowledged as a cause of radiating pain in lower limbs and suspicion is almost always pointed towards lumbo-sacral causes. Schwannomas are tumours of peripheral nerve sheaths occurring anywhere along the peripheral nervous system. Often it can produce symptoms, which can be misleading in cases where obvious swelling is not present. The diagnosis may therefore be delayed by several years of emergence of symptoms. Very few such cases have been reported previously and none of them had an intrasubstance location of the tumour as in our case...

We present the case of a 68-year-old woman who developed a painful subcutaneous tumour in the sacral region. Histological examinations revealed a characteristic zonal pattern with a central zone of liquefactive necrosis, surrounded by proliferated atypical fibroblasts and prominent vessels, indicating ischaemic fasciitis. We demonstrate that the characteristic features of ischaemic fasciitis revealed by ultrasonography are strongly associated with those revealed by pathological findings. We thus believe that ultrasonography is a valid tool for making an accurate diagnosis of ischaemic fasciitis...

AIMS: Osteosarcoma of the pelvis is a particularly difficult tumour to treat as it often presents late, may be of considerable size and/or associated with metastases when it presents, and is frequently chondroid in origin and resistant to chemotherapy. The aim of this study was to review our experience of managing this group of patients and to identify features predictive of a poor outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1983 and 2014, 121 patients, (74 females and 47 males) were treated at a single hospital: 74 (61...

Schwannomas are common, benign, slow growing tumours of peripheral nerve sheath arising from the schwann cells of the neuroectoderm. They do not transverse the nerve but remain within the sheath on top of the nerve. They rarely present in the sciatic nerve. Sciatic schwannomas may mimic symptoms of herniated disc, usually with radiation of pain to buttocks and thigh region with inability to walk for long distances and sometimes may present with claudication. In the absence of low back pain and with a normal Lumbo-Sacral MRI study, causes intrinsic to sciatic nerve needs to be thought off, which often delays the diagnosis...

PURPOSE: The sacrum is a rare but unfavourable location for Aneurysmal Bone Cysts (ABCs), surgical procedures aiming to achieve local tumour control can be mutilating. Aim of this study was to evaluate whether selective arterial embolisation (AE) of ABC of the sacrum is an effective treatment and might be an alternative to surgical treatment options. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2007 and 2011 six patients (mean age 13.7 years, range 8 - 18 years) with an ABC of the sacrum were treated by AE...

INTRODUCTION: Sacral chordoma is a rare low-to-intermediate grade malignant tumour. The mainstay of treatment is still surgery with en bloc and wide resection margins, which can grant the best chances of a long-term control or cure of this disease. The first aim of this paper is to collect data about survival, time to local recurrence and metastasis among patients affected by sacral chordoma and primarily treated with surgery. The second aim is to analyze the influence of level resection, tumor volume and surgical margins on local recurrence...

Cauda equina syndrome refers to dysfunction of the cauda equina, the collection of ventral and dorsal lumbar, sacral and coccygeal nerve roots that surround the filum terminale. This most commonly occurs as a result of compression by a herniated lumbosacral disc. However, the syndrome may also complicate metastatic cancer or a primary neoplasm within or infiltrating the spinal canal. An accurate and timely diagnosis is critical to avoid irreversible loss of neurological function. The clinician and radiologist must therefore be aware of the many possible causes to guide timely management...

PURPOSE: Our aim was to introduce a novel combined hemipelvic endoprosthesis for pelvic reconstruction after Enneking type I/II/IV resection and to evaluate the biomechanical properties of the endoprosthesis using finite element analysis. METHODS: A three-dimensional finite element model of the postoperative pelvis was developed based on computed tomography (CT) images of the patient with the best post-operative limb function. A force of 400 N was applied along the longitudinal axis of the normal and post-operative pelvis for two positions: standing on two feet and sitting...

Chordomas are rare malignant bone tumours with a predilection for the axial skeleton, especially the sacrum and skull base. Median survival in patients with metastatic disease is usually dismal. Treatment is challenging due to the propensity for local recurrence, metastatic disease as well as lack of clear consensus regarding the optimal management. Our case report highlights two cases of sacral chordoma with locally recurrent and widespread metastatic disease, stable on molecular targeted therapy.

Desmoplastic fibroblastoma (collagenous fibroma) is a rare and recently recognised benign tumour. Most desmoplastic fibroblastomas arise in the subcutaneous tissue or skeletal muscle. Involvement of the dermis is extremely rare. We describe an unusual case of dermal desmoplastic fibroblastoma presenting as a large sacral mass in a 16-year-old male. An awareness of this entity is necessary to avoid confusion with other benign and malignant soft tissue neoplasms.

Giant cell tumour (GCT) is an uncommon primary bone tumour, and its multicentric presentation is exceedingly rare. We report a case of a 45-year-old female who presented to us with GCT of left distal radius. On the skeletal survey, osteolytic lesion was noted in her right sacral ala. Biopsy confirmed both lesions as GCT. Pulmonary metastasis was also present. Resection-reconstruction arthroplasty for distal radius and thorough curettage and bone grafting of the sacral lesion were done. Multicentric GCT involving distal radius and sacrum with primary sacral involvement is not reported so far to our knowledge...

Ewing's sarcoma is a primary malignancy of the bone affecting individuals in the second decade of life. Primary sarcomas of the spine are rare and the occurrence of Primary Ewing's sarcoma in the spine is very rare. Ewing's sarcoma occurring in the spine is divided into two types, Ewing's sarcoma of sacral spine which are very aggressive with poor prognosis and Ewing's sarcoma of the non sacral spine which is an extremely rare occurrence. Patient may present with neurological deficit when the tumour extends into the spinal canal causing spinal cord compression...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of patients with a sacral chordoma and the surgical management of locally recurrent disease. Between October 1990 and August 2013 we operated on 54 consecutive patients with a sacral chordoma. There were 34 men and 20 women with a mean age of 60 years (25 to 86). The mean maximum diameter of the tumour was 9.3 cm (3 to 20). The mean follow-up was 7.8 years (2 months to 23.4 years). The disease-specific survival was 82% at five years, 57% at ten years and 45% at 15 years...

Chordomas are known as rare primary malign tumours that have formed from primitive notochord remains. Sacral chordomas grow slowly but locally and aggressively. Chordomas are locally invasive and have low tendency to metastasis and have a poor prognosis in long-term follow-up. Metastasis may be seen in a rate of 5-40% of the chordomas. Metastasis of chordomas is common in liver, lung, lymph nodes, peritoneum, and brain. The treatment approaches, including surgery, have been discussed in the literature before...

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour usually occurs between 20-50 years of age, comprising about 5-10% of soft tissue sarcomas. Only 1.7% of them have been reported to occur in children < 5 months of age according to the literature. Here, we are describing 18 mnth old male child presented with a swelling in the lower back. MRI showed a sacrcoccygeal swelling extending to and communicating with CSF at lower sacral level. Birth history of the child was normal with normal apgar score. The histological diagnosis was malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour...

Chordomas are rare, low grade, malignant tumours derived from the ectopic remnants of the notochord that line the axial skeleton. They are characterised by their slow growth, long disease course and propensity for local relapse. Furthermore, up to 40% of non-cranial chordomas metastasise. We describe the first reported case of a hand metastasis arising from a conventional sacral chordoma after carbon ion radiotherapy. The common occurrence of distant metastasis with chordomas makes it important to perform a systemic examination, in part because their resection might improve patient prognosis...
