ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Chondroblastoma with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst

History: 24 yo man with right-sided lower posterior chest/rib pain for 4-6 months, increases with deep inspiration. He denies history of trauma.

Findings: • right paraspinal chest wall mass • measures 6.9x4.7x4.6 cm • located at levels T8 - T10 • mass erodes into T9 & T10 vertebral bodies, T9 pedicle, rib 9 • does not appear to disrupt thecal sac, though neural foramina is eroded • mild enhancement with gadolinium on T1 MR • sclerotic margins present in surrounding eroded structures • multiple fluid-fluid levels on T2 • no pathologic lymphadenopathy • no other abnormal findings are noted

Ddx: » Benign Primary Bone Tumors • fibrous dysplasia • chondroblastoma • chondromyxoid fibroma • osteochondroma • giant cell tumor • enchondroma » Malignant Primary Bone Tumors • chondrosarcoma • osteoblastoma, aggressive variant • osteosarcoma » Other • aneurysmal bone cyst • neurogenic tumors

Dxhow: Core biopsy and pathology

Exam: Tenderness to palpation approximately at posterior rib 11

No MeSH data available.


Large opacity visible in right lung field, at level of right hilum.  The density has fairly well delineated borders superiorly and inferiorly, but becomes patchy laterally. Lesion does not silhouette the right heart border.  Rib 9 markings adjacent to thoracic spine are poorly defined.
