  1. Skeletal metastases from soft-tissue sarcomas : Incidence, patterns, and radiological features.

    Article - En anglais

    We reviewed 277 patients with soft-tissue sarcoma (STS) treated between 1975 and 1995 to study the incidence, distribution, time of appearance, and radiological findings of skeletal metastases.

    Of these, 28 (10.1%) had metastases within a mean period of 18.6 months after admission.

    The incidence of skeletal metastases differed among the histological subtypes of sarcoma ; alveolar soft-part sarcoma, dedifferentiated liposarcoma, angiosarcoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma tended to show higher incidences.

    The regional bones close to the primary tumour were affected in 13 (46.4%) of the 28 patients, and the axial bones in 18 (64.3%). Radiologically, the metastatic bony lesions predominantly showed osteolytic changes, and there were pathological fractures in 21 of 44 lesions.
