Mentions: The patient underwent surgery under general anesthesia. Vertical elliptical incision was taken over the posterior border of the right upper arm over the tumor. The tumor was under the lower part of deltoid which formed the roof near the upper end of humerus, between the long and medial heads of triceps muscles (Fig. 3a and b). 6 cm × 5 cm × 5 cm sized part of the tumor was under the long head of triceps displacing it medially along with radial nerve and vessels. 7 cm × 6 cm × 3 cm sized part of tumor was under the medial head of triceps displacing it laterally. The tumor was excised undocking the periosteal attachment (Fig. 4a). After hemostasis, wound was closed with a suction drain in situ. The specimen (Fig. 5a) weighed 250 g. Postoperatively a shoulder sling was given for 3 weeks to prevent any inadvertent fracture following the use of osteotome over the humerus during the surgery. Sutures were removed on postoperative day 10. Postoperative course was uneventful. Postoperative X-ray (Fig. 1b) of right humerus was normal and showed no bony excrescences.
