Solid Variant of Aneurysmal Bone Cyst (SVABC) is an uncommon neoplasm seen in young patients. The lesion presents clinically as well as on radiology like a malignant bone tumour. The aggressive features in most of the cases lead to a wrong diagnosis. Radiologically, it is expansile osteolytic with cortical breach being seen in many of the cases. We report two cases of SVABC which were misdiagnosed as malignant bone tumours. Both cases were seen in long bones. Radiologically both lesions were expansile, osteolytic, solid cystic, with destruction of cortex and were diagnosed as osteosarcomas...

Differentiating osteoclast-rich lesions of bone (giant cell tumor of bone [GCTB], chondroblastoma [CBA], and aneurysmal bone cyst [ABC]) can be challenging, especially in small biopsies or fine needle aspirations. Mutations affecting codons 34 and 36 of either H3 Histone Family Member 3A (H3F3A) and/or 3B (H3F3B) are characteristically seen in GCTB and CBAs. We devised a simple assay to identify these mutations and evaluated its applicability for routine clinical diagnosis. 124 tissue specimens from 108 patients (43 GCTBs, 38 CBAs and 27 ABCs) were collected from the archives of the Calgary Laboratory Services/University of Calgary and Vanderbilt University Medical Center...

Hydatid cyst is usually located in the liver and lungs, rare cases showing localization in other organs or tissues. In the unusual location, echinococcosis is an excluding diagnosis that is established only after microscopic evaluation. Our first case occurred in a 67-year-old female previously diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis and hospitalized with persistent pain in the hip joint. The clinical diagnosis was tuberculosis of the joint, but the presence of the specific acellular membrane indicated a hydatid cyst of the synovial membrane, without bone involvement...

An aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is believed to be attributable to intraosseous circulatory disturbance. An ABC is a vascular tumor of the bone caused by bony expansion after partial vascular occlusion and congestion. Most ABCs are found in adolescents (approximately 75% of ABCs are observed in patients under 20 years of age). The most common ABC sites are the long bones of the limbs, the vertebrae, and the cranial bone. Aneurysmal bone cysts in the skull base or ethmoid sinus have been but rarely reported worldwide...

Giant cell tumor (GCT) is one of the most common tumors of bone and is the most common precursor of aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC). The clinical behavior of concurrent GCT and ABC can be very aggressive in children. GCT of the ribs, with or without ABC, is rarely seen in children. We report a case of an 8-year-old girl with GCT and associated ABC of the ribs who presented with sudden onset of chest pain and breathlessness due to a hemothorax. The patient was successfully treated by surgical resections and arterial embolization...

We report development of an aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) that was located in the proximal region of the femur in an 11-year-old girl. Over a period of 30 weeks, the ABC showed fulminant local progression, with destruction of the bone, which led to an abrupt loss of function of the left hip. The standard tumour treatment protocol was followed. We performed embolisation of the tumour followed by a biopsy, which confirmed the diagnosis of ABC. The outcome was negative with total destruction of the proximal third of the femur, despite repeating the embolisation...

Solid variant aneurysmal bone cyst is a rare benign bone lesion, representing a small fraction of all aneurysmal bone cysts. The imaging appearance and histologic features may overlap with other benign and malignant neoplasms, posing a diagnostic dilemma for clinicians, pathologists, and radiologists. We present a case of solid variant aneurysmal bone cyst of the distal fibula and review the radiologic and histologic features important for diagnosis.

Anevrysmal bone cyst is an aggressive, destructive but benign lesion in the long bones, spine or basin, affecting mainly children and young adults. However, it is a very rare tumor. We here report the case of a 8-year old boy with a very rare localization of anevrysmal cyst in the clavicle, initially presenting with pathologic bone fracture, that is a benign cystic lesion. The child underwent complete radical resection of the cyst located at the level of the right clavicle, followed by anatomopathological examination of surgical specimen which confirmed the diagnosis...

Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is an expansile cystic lesion that may affect any bone of the skeleton. Although exceedingly rare, lesions with histomorphologic characteristics of an ABC have reportedly originated within soft tissue. Extraskeletal ABC may mimic a variety of benign and malignant lesions and can be confused with other more common or rare giant cell-rich tumors of soft tissue, especially myositis ossificans. Clinical, radiological and histologic correlation is crucial in reaching the correct diagnosis...

Denosumab, a human monoclonal antibody that inhibits bone resorption by binding on the receptor activator of the nuclear factor kappa-β ligand, has recently emerged as an additional option in the treatment of musculoskeletal osteolytic tumors. This article focuses on the recent literature regarding the effectiveness of denosumab in the management of giant cell tumor, multiple myeloma, aneurysmal bone cyst, and osteosarcoma. The mechanism of action of denosumab in the management of these tumors and the associated side effects are discussed in detail...

The optimal treatment of aneurysmal bone cyst remains challenging. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the results of using bone grafts shaped to the defects caused by aneurysmal bone cysts of upper limb bones. Fifteen patients (12 males and 3 females) with an average age of 12 years (range 6-16 years) were treated for aneurysmal bone cysts of upper limb bones by intralesional resection, argon beam coagulation and shaped bone graft. The grafts were harvested from 14 patients (11 fibulas and 3 iliac bones) and from the mother of one patient (proximal fibula)...

OBJECTIVE: The best treatment of aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) is still unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of extended curettage and ethanol as an adjuvant to reduce local recurrence of ABCs. METHODS: Retrospectively, 68 cases treated for primary and secondary ABCs caused by benign tumors from 2003 to 2013 were enrolled to a follow-up visit between one to ten years after the surgery. The treatment protocol was en-bloc resection, biopsy and curettage, extended curettage consisted of curettage, high-speed burring, ethanol 96%, and electrocauterization (combined four-step alcohol-using approach) followed by defect filling, consecutively...

Hydatid disease or hydatidosis is the most widespread zoonosis caused by Echinococcus granulosus. Liver and lungs are the most common sites. Bone involvement is rare and reported in 0.5%-4% with spinal involvement reported in 50% of these cases. We present a case of spinal hydatidosis in a 35-year-old male presenting with lower extremity weakness and numbness. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the spine showed multiple cystic lesions at the T9-T11 level with involvement of the paraspinal muscles. The lesion was seen intraspinal, intradural, intramedullary, and epidural...

Aneurysmal Bone Cyst (ABC) is an uncommon benign lesion affecting mainly the long bones and vertebral column. Its occurrence in the maxillofacial skeleton is rare. So far only five cases of ABC in the zygoma have been reported in the literature. Radiographic features of ABC are not pathognomonic. There can be expansion of bone and it may manifest as cystic lesion with honeycomb or soap bubble appearance. There can be perforation or destruction of cortex of the bone as well. Therefore the differential diagnosis of ABC is quite conflicting with other types of maxillary bone lesions...

Cervical spine aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) in pediatric patients have not been thoroughly studied. Using PubMed and Google Scholar, a systematic review of the literature was conducted for publications that included patients aged ≤15 years with a confirmed diagnosis of ABC in the cervical spine. Thirty-five studies with a total of 71 patients met the inclusion criteria. Nearly 80% of patients presented with neck or shoulder pain. The axis was the level most frequently involved (34.28%), followed by C5 (24...

Gene fusions resulting from structural rearrangements are an established mechanism of tumorigenesis in pediatric cancer. In this clinical cohort, 1,350 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-based chromosomal microarrays from 1,211 pediatric cancer patients were evaluated for copy number alterations (CNAs) associated with gene fusions. Karyotype or fluorescence in situ hybridization studies were performed in 42% of the patients. Ten percent of the bone marrow or solid tumor specimens had SNP array-associated CNAs suggestive of a gene fusion...

The solid variant of an aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) has been observed very rarely, especially those involving the spine. In this case report, we present a very unusual tumour of the thoracic spine which was managed by 360˚ decompression via posterior-only approach and stabilization. A 16-year-old boy presented to us with a sudden onset of weakness in both lower limbs leading to paraplegia. He also had a history of back and chest pain over the past one year. A collapse of the T5 vertebrae on plain radiograph was observed...

Chondroblastoma is a rare primary bone tumor of young people that typically arises in the ends of the long bones. Radiologic investigations show a small, circumscribed, lytic lesion. The tumor is characterized histologically by the proliferation of chondroblasts along with areas of mature cartilage, giant cells, and occasionally, secondary aneurysmal bone cyst formation. Chondroblastoma, however, may also present with atypical features, such as prominent hemosiderin deposition, numerous giant cells, or the presence of a large aneurysmal bone cyst component...
