1/6. Oncogenic osteomalacia presenting as bilateral stress fractures of the tibia.

    We report on a patient with bilateral stress fractures of the tibia who subsequently showed classic biochemical features of oncogenic osteomalacia. Conventional radiographs were normal. MR imaging revealed symmetric, bilateral, band-like low-signal lesions perpendicular to the medial cortex of the tibiae and corresponding to the only lesions subsequently seen on the bone scan. A maxillary sinus lesion was subsequently detected and surgically removed resulting in prompt alleviation of symptoms and normalization of hypophosphatemia and low 1,25-(OH)2 vitamin D3. The lesion was pathologically diagnosed as a hemangiopericytoma-like tumor. patients with oncogenic osteomalacia may present with stress fractures limited to the tibia, as seen in athletes. The clue to the real diagnosis lies in paying close attention to the serum phosphate levels, especially in patients suffering generalized symptoms of weakness and not given to unusual physical activity.

2/6. Primary hemangiopericytoma of the tibia: MR and angiographic correlation.

    The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearances of primary osseous hemangiopericytoma (HPC) have been rarely described. We report on a 46-year-old Chinese man with primary osseous HPC of the right tibia. The characteristic vascular distribution of this tumor, presenting with a "spoke-wheel" appearance on MR images and with angiographic correlation, is described. Although not pathognomonic, this MR appearance may be an important finding in suggesting the diagnosis of osseous HPC.

3/6. Malignant hemangiopericytoma of the bone.

    hemangiopericytoma is a rare vascular tumor of pericyte origin with variable malignant potential. Very rarely, this tumor occurs as a primary bone lesion. We present a case of a highly malignant hemangiopericytoma of the proximal tibia. Current therapy consists of radical resection of the tumor with postoperative radiation therapy being recommended. Chemotherapy seems to be useful in disseminated disease. The prognosis correlates to the histological grading of the tumor. Early or late recurrence and distant metastases with fatal outcome, as shown in our case study, are not uncommon.

4/6. Perivascular myoma of myopericytoma and myofibromatosis-type arising in a chronic scar.

    We describe a case of a cutaneous perivascular myoma with features overlapping between the myofibromatosis and the myopericytoma type. The patient is a 58-year-old woman with a painless plaque-like and multinodular lesion in the pretibial dermis and subcutaneous tissue. She had repeated trauma to this site, first in her early youth that left an area of hyperpigmentation, and then again at age 40. The biopsy showed a biphasic pattern with a myofibromatosis-type component composed of spindle cell myoid nodules and more cellular round cell areas. The myopericytoma-like areas appeared to be infiltrating along vessels. These areas contained aggregates of immature-appearing cells arranged concentrically around vascular lumina in a manner reminiscent of pericytes. Immunohistochemical stains showed focal positivity for smooth muscle actin. Immunohistochemical and ultrastructural studies have showed these pericyte-like cells to be of a myoid origin. The reason for the neoplastic proliferation of perivascular myoid cells is presently unknown. The association of trauma and neoplastic transformation of the skin is rare. We report the first case of a cutaneous perivascular myoma arising in a chronic scar.

5/6. Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of bone associated with focal hemangiopericytomatous pattern.

    A case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the tibia of a 49-year-old Japanese farmer was presented. The patient was diagnosed as malignant hemangiopericytoma by biopsy, whereas the amputated material showed a marked pleomorphism representing features of malignant fibrous histiocytoma. Ultrastructurally, undifferentiated mesenchymal cells, intermediate cells between the undifferentiated mesenchymal cells and fibroblastic cells, fibroblastic cells and histiocytoid cells including bizarre giant cells were confirmed in a broad modulating spectrum. The hemangiopericytomatous lesion was predominated by intermediate cells, the ultrastructure of which bore a close resemblance to that of pericytes, and was regarded to be resulted from a differentiation of undifferentiated mesenchymal cells towards the pericyte.

6/6. Primary hemangiopericytoma of bone located in the tibia.

    Primary hemangiopericytoma of the bone is a rare tumor. We describe a patient with primary hemangiopericytoma of the tibia treated by surgery. The clinical and radiological features of this tumor are described. The radiological and histopathological different diagnosis of hemangiopericytoma is discussed.
