Abstract

A young patient surviving four years after treatment for primary intracerebral small-cell osteosarcoma is reported. This 16-year-old girl presented with headaches, visual disturbance, and papilledema and was found to have a large, heavily calcified mass in the left parietal lobe. A gross total resection of the tumor was performed and pathologic analysis revealed a small-cell osteosarcoma. Thoracic computerized tomography (CT) scans and a complete bone scan showed no other lesions. The patient received adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She continues to do well with no evidence of metastases or local recurrence 4 years after her initial presentation. The clinical, radiographic, surgical, pathologic, and immunohistochemical features of this case, along with therapeutic interventions and outcome, are presented.
