Read the abstract of the medical case
presenting as an aneurysmal bone cyst: a case report
Nonossifying fibroma is a common
fibrous bone lesion in children that occurs in the metaphysis of the long bones
of the lower extremities. The lesion rarely leads to aneurysmal bone cyst,
which is characterized as a blood-filled space.
We present the case of a
13-year-old Japanese boy with a complaint of discomfort in the thigh and a
small, well-defined, osteolytic lesion with cortical thinning located in the
medullary space of the distal diaphysis of the femur. At 10-month follow-up,
the size of the lesion had increased. Gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance
imaging failed to detect any solid area. Curettage and bone graft were
performed and confirmed a blood-filled cystic lesion. The pathological
diagnosis of the cyst wall was that of nonossifying fibroma, suggesting
aneurysmal bone cyst as a secondary change. An aneurysmal bone cyst is rarely
found secondary to nonossifying fibroma, and the diaphyseal location is
atypical for nonossifying fibroma, both of which made diagnosis challenging.
The current case is a reminder to
clinicians that, although rare, nonossifying fibroma can be associated with
aneurysmal bone cyst, and both can occur in the diaphysis of long bones.
