Abstract

Osteosarcoma most frequently affects long bones, particularly around the
knee, and is therefore rare in the forearm. We report the case of a 67-year-old
woman presenting with progressive lesion of the distal radius. A pathological
diagnosis of osteoblastic osteosarcoma was suspected and was confirmed by
needle biopsy. There had been two other cases of osteosarcoma in the same
family. The patient was treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by
amputation of the arm below the elbow.
