Abstract

A 58-year-old female patient presented with chest pain and swelling in her neck. Computerized tomography showed an expansile mass containing lytic-sclerotic areas that caused destructions in the manibrium sterni and extended as far as to the thyroid gland at the lower cervical region and the upper mediastinum. Since osteosarcoma of the sternum is a extremely rare entity, we have thought to explain radiologic approach based on our experience.
