abstract

  • The association of an angiosarcoma with a bone infarct has been established in only five cases. Although the number of such associations is small, it seems that such an association may be prognostically more or less the same as in those cases in which a bone infarct is associated with either osteosarcoma, fibrosarcoma or malignant fibrous histiocytoma, where the survival rate is unfavorable. A cause-and-effect relationship may exist between a bone infarct and subsequent development of a bone sarcoma.
