Parosteal osteosarcoma (POS) is a rare, slow-growing malignant tumour that predominantly occurs on the surface of the metaphysis of long bones. POS accounts for ~1-2% of primary malignant bone tumours.
Wide resection of POS is recommended to prevent local recurrence and the rate of distant metastasis; however, the optimal technique for long bone diaphyseal reconstruction following tumour resection is undecided.
The present case report describes the treatment of a 27-year old patient diagnosed with POS localized in the diaphysis of the right femur. A intercalary endoprosthesis was used to achieve anatomical and functional reconstruction for a 10 cm bone defect following en bloc tumour resection.
These intercalary implants helps in early recovery of the patients that is not possible in biological method of treatment. However, long-term follow studies are required to know the longevity of these implants and complication related to them.
