Chondroblastoma is a rare, benign bone tumor that represents 1-2% of all primary bone tumors. Denosumab, a monoclonal antibody, has been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of giant cell tumors. We report a case of recurrent chondroblastoma of the squamous temporal bone that is currently suppressed with denosumab.

Background: Chondroblastomas are benign tumors that typically occur in the epiphysis of long bones. Carpal bone chondroblastomas are very rare and are known to have less aggressive behavior with no evidence of recurrence reported. Methods: We present a case of a recurrent chondroblastoma in the capitate that was treated with repeat curettage, application of phenol, and bone grafting. Results: At 3 years post surgery, the patient is disease free with excellent functional return. Conclusion: Chondroblastomas are rare within the carpus...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of intramedullary nailing for benign lesions of the proximal femur. METHOD: A retrospective analysis was carried out on 68 cases of benign lesions in the proximal femur at our hospital from April 2002 to April 2013 (38 men and 30 women). Mean age at surgery was 35.5 years (range, 22-56 years). The cases were divided into two groups: curettage of the lesion with bone grafting only as the grafting group (32 cases) and internal fixation after removal of the lesion as the fixation group (36 cases)...

Discrete cystic or tumorous intraosseous lesions can arise from a variety of benign and malignant conditions as well as trauma and infection. They are clinically rarely observed in the calcaneus. A fourteen-to-seventeen-year-old subadult recovered from a Late Woodland (∼AD 800-1100) period mortuary context in the Mississippi River Valley of central Illinois presents with a single lytic intraosseous lesion on the posterior right calcaneus that bilaterally perforates the cortex. The lesion, although primarily anterior to the epiphyseal plate, does breach it...

BACKGROUND: H3.3 histone is a replacement histone subtype that is express in entire cell cycle phases and overexpress in transcriptionally active regions, promoter regions, and intergenic or intragenic regulatory elements. This histone encoded by two genes termed H3.3A (H3F3A) and H3.3B (H3F3B). Mutations of these two genes lead to some human cancers such as chondroblastoma, osteosarcoma, and epithelial ovarian cancer. The aims of this study were to quantitatively examine the expression of H3...

Chondroblastoma is a benign bone tumor, represents 1%-2% of all primary bone tumors, typically seen in patients 10-25-year-old and more common in males. It occurs most frequently in the distal femur, proximal tibia, and proximal humerus. Soft tissue extension is extremely rare. Adjacent joints may develop effusions, but the tumor mass protruding into the joint has never been seen in case of chondroblastoma. We report a rare case of intra-articular chondroblastoma arising from proximal tibia in a 16-year-old boy and growing into the knee joint mimicking an intra-articular osteochondroma...

AIMS: Giant cell tumour of bone (GCTB) is a neoplasm predominantly of long bones characterised by the H3F3A mutation G34W. Conventional diagnostic is challenged by the tumour's giant cell-rich morphology, which overlaps with other giant cell containing lesions of the bone. Recently, a monoclonal antibody specific for the H3F3A mutation has been generated. Our aim was to test this antibody on a cohort of giant cell containing lesions. METHODS AND RESULTS: We used the antibody for analysis of 22 H3F3A-mutated GCTB, including two patients with recurrences; for comparison we analysed a cohort of 36 H3F3A-wild-type giant cell-rich lesions of the bone and soft tissue, containing one brown tumour, six aneurysmal bone cysts, six chondroblastomas, five non-ossifying-fibromas, two fibrous dysplasias, nine tenosynovial giant cell tumours, one giant cell-rich sarcoma and six osteosarcomas...

Chondroblastoma is a cartilaginous tumor that typically arises under 25 years of age (80%). Recent studies have identified a somatic and heterozygous mutation at the H3F3B gene in over 90% chondroblastoma cases, leading to a lysine 36 to methionine replacement (H3.3K36M). In human cells, H3F3B gene is one of two genes that encode identical H3.3 proteins. It is not known how H3.3K36M mutant proteins promote tumorigenesis. We and others have shown that, the levels of H3K36 di- and tri-methylation (H3K36me2/me3) are reduced dramatically in chondroblastomas and chondrocytes bearing the H3...

Behjati et al recently described recurrent mutations of H3F3 genes in giant cell tumors of the bone and chondroblastomas. Both these entities belong to the spectrum of giant cell-rich bone lesions, often presenting a diagnostic challenge for the pathologist. Our aim was to investigate the value of searching for H3F3 mutations in the diagnosis of giant cell tumors of the bone and giant cell-rich chondroblastomas. Two hundred eighty-one bone lesion samples, including 170 giant cell tumors of the bone, 26 chondroblastomas and 85 other giant cell-rich and/or epiphyseal tumors, were analyzed...

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease of public health interest, infecting one-third of the world population. Up to 3% of all Tubercular cases have musculoskeletal involvement with less than 1% involving the scapular. To the best of our knowledge, we present the third case of acromion involvement in reported literature. An adolescent female with complains of shoulder pain with no restriction of movements, no local symptoms, no fever, no history of tuberculosis was being treated on analgesics for three months at a primary health centre...

We present a rare case of giant soap bubble-shaped cystic lesion in the craniofacial region in an adult female. Histopathologic examination revealed the tumor consisted of 3 components including chondroblastoma, chondromyxoid fibroma, and hemorrhagic aneurysmal bone cyst. The present case is rare in terms of size, location, and histopathologic diagnosis, which is probably the result of underdeveloped health care in the remote place.

Chondroblastoma is a rare benign cartilage neoplasm that arises from the appendicular skeleton in the vast majority of the cases (80%). Chondroblastoma of the spine is an even more rare condition (30 cases reported), and vertebral chondroblastomas, unlike chondroblastomas of the extremities, present with the appearance of an aggressive tumor on CT and MR imaging and occur at least a decade later. Even though vertebral chondroblastomas are very uncommon tumors, they should nonetheless be included in the differential diagnosis when encountered with an aggressive vertebral mass, and a histological confirmation should be performed...

We present a 37-year-old patient with a chondroblastoma in his right acromion. The acromion is an unusual site for this type of tumor and the typical surgical treatment involves resection of the involved acromion bone. The patient was surgically treated with resection of the right acromion and autogenous iliac bone grafting. Twenty five months postoperatively, he demonstrated full shoulder function, without evidence of local recurrence or metastasis.

Chondroblastomas are benign bone tumors that are usually located at epiphyseal regions of long bones, and are rarely located at the talus. The usual treatment consists of curettage and filling of the bone defect with bone either bone grafts or some other material, such as cement. The authors present a case of a massive chondroblastma of the talus, extending outside of bone boundaries and with a huge soft tissue mass and invasion of the adjacent calcaneus. Management included an en bloc talectomy through a double medial and lateral approach, and curettage and filling with cement of the calcaneal extension...

Although the majority of giant cell tumors (GCTs) of the bone occur in adult patients, occasionally they arise in the pediatric population. In this setting they may be mistaken for tumors more commonly seen in this age group, including osteosarcoma, aneurysmal bone cyst, and chondroblastoma. All cases of primary GCT of the bone arising in patients 18 years and below were retrieved from our institutional archives and examined with emphasis on the evaluation of various morphologic patterns. Clinical/radiologic records were reviewed when available...

Sarcomas are infrequent mesenchymal neoplasms characterized by notable morphological and molecular heterogeneity. Molecular studies in sarcoma provide refinements to morphologic classification, and contribute diagnostic information (frequently), prognostic stratification (rarely) and predict therapeutic response (occasionally). Herein, we summarize the major molecular mechanisms underlying sarcoma pathogenesis and present clinically useful diagnostic, prognostic and predictive molecular markers for sarcoma...

Chondroblastoma is an uncommon benign bone tumour, involvement of epiphysis of long bones is typical. Chondroblastoma of the calcaneum is uncommon and its association with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst is even rarer. Only two cases of calcaneal chondroblastoma associated with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst have been reported till date. A 22-year-old male presented to the department of orthopaedics with complains of pain and swelling in the left heel since the last 10 months. On clinico-radiological grounds differentials considered were giant cell tumour of bone and aneurysmal bone cyst...

High-frequency point mutations of genes encoding histones have been identified recently as novel drivers in a number of tumors. Specifically, the H3K36M/I mutations were shown to be oncogenic in chondroblastomas and undifferentiated sarcomas by inhibiting H3K36 methyltransferases, including SETD2. Here we report the crystal structures of the SETD2 catalytic domain bound to H3K36M or H3K36I peptides with SAH (S-adenosylhomocysteine). In the complex structure, the catalytic domain adopts an open conformation, with the K36M/I peptide snuggly positioned in a newly formed substrate channel...
