ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Giant cell tumor of the bone (Osteoclastoma)

History: 34-year-old Caucasian male who, for six months, had left knee pain that had become progressively worse. The patient has no history of trauma to the knee.

Findings: Anteroposterior and lateral radiographs of the knee shows a large lytic lesion of the meta-eiphiphysis of the left distal femur extending into the lateral epicondyle. The tumor appears to be confined within the bone on the radiograph. The lesion appears to have well defined, smooth border and is consistent with a slowly growing tumor. CT scan in bone windows of the left knee shows an osteolytic, well demarcated mass but with disruption of the cortex posteriorly breakthrough of the cortical bone by the lesion on images 16, 17, and 22.

No MeSH data available.
