A 15 year old young woman first came to our attention because of an apparent "re-growth" of a tumor mass immediately adjacent to the site of a previous surface lesion removed at age 11.
Radiologic images (Case - 4 Figs. 1-2) revealed an abnormal lesion adjacent to the lateral aspect of the distal fibula with some mixed elements including bone and cartilage but without continuity to the fibula marrow. The consulting radiologist felt an organizing hematoma would need to be excluded but a neoplastic proliferation could not be completely eliminated. Representative images of the histology are provided for your review (Case 4 - Figs. 3-4).
The intra-operative radiograph (Case 4 - Fig 5) and original slide from three years earlier were subsequently obtained and additional images are provided (Case 4 - Figs. 6-7).
The patient was not treated beyond simple excision and now at age 17 has developed a second recurrence. A representative radiologic (Case 4 - Fig 8) and two histopathologic (Case 4 - Figs. 9-10) images are similarly provided.
During the meeting the slides and protocols will be available for study in the microscope
room in the Manchester Grand Hyatt (Betsy A-C) for participants who wish to review them prior to the
Handouts for all Specialty Conferences will be accessible via the
"Educational Materials" section on the homepage the morning after each respective conference. Printed
copies of the handout will not be available at the meeting. However, we will provide a booklet at the
meeting which will have a page for each Specialty Conference, listing the names of speakers and space for the important "take home messages".
