Department of Pathology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Jodhpur, Rajasthan 342005, India. Electronic address:

Case Description: Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are locally aggressive, cystic lesions of the skeletal system, most commonly seen in the metaphyseal region of long bones. On the other hand, an ABC of the foot (especially the calcaneum) is a rare entity, with very few cases reported in the literature. In this study, we present three such cases who presented to us with the chief complaint of chronic heel pain. Read More

Imaging of Non-ossifying Fibromas: A Case Series.

Cureus 2021 Mar 25;13(3):e14102. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Trauma and Orthopaedics, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals National Health Service Foundation Trust, Cambridge, GBR.

Non-ossifying fibromas (NOFs) are common lesions most frequently found in the growing bones of children and adolescents. Although NOFs are benign, their presence as incidental findings often triggers further investigation as they are sometimes mistaken for more sinister bone lesions such as aneurysmal bone cysts. NOFs can also pose an increased risk of pathological fractures. Read More

Towards better understanding of giant cell granulomas of the oral cavity.

J Clin Pathol 2021 Apr 15. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Oral Pathology, University of Missouri Kansas City, Kansas City, Missouri, USA.

Giant cell granulomas are enigmatic lesions of the oral cavity characterised by a peculiar combined proliferation of mononuclear and multinucleated giant cells in a mesenchymal stromal background. Central and peripheral giant cell granulomas may have similar pathogenesis and histology but differ in their location and biological behaviour. It is important to differentiate them from other giant cell lesions that can occur in the oral cavity, such as giant cell tumour of the bone, aneurysmal bone cyst, brown tumour of hyperparathyroidism, and giant cell lesions of Ramon syndrome, Noonan syndrome, neurofibromatosis and Jaffe-Campanacci syndrome.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 Mar 9. Epub 2021 Mar 9.

Chief Physician, Department of Orthopaedics, the First Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning, China. Electronic address:

Few studies have characterized the clinical outcomes of 45S5 Bioglass® applied as a bone graft to that of allogeneic bone applied in calcaneal open curettage. Therefore, the purpose of the present investigation was to compare the outcomes of patients with calcaneal tumors and tumor-like lesions treated by open curettage with 45S5 Bioglass® or allogeneic bone. Of the 31 patients who underwent open curettage (18 cases of unicameral bone cysts, 7 cases of aneurysmal bone cysts, and 6 cases of intraosseous lipoma), 16 (52%) received grafts with 45S5 Bioglass® and 15 (48%) with allogeneic bone.

Severe Acute Lung Injury After H2O2 Irrigation of an Aneurysmal Bone Cyst in an 8-Year-Old Girl: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2021 Mar 15;15(3):e01424. Epub 2021 Mar 15.

From the Division of Pediatric Intensive Care and Pulmonology.

An 8-year-old girl developed severe acute lung injury after irrigation of a pelvic aneurysmal bone cyst with H2O2 and filling with bone cement. Sudden profound oxygen desaturation occurred on the operating table when the patient was turned from the prone to the supine position. After a brief improvement in her oxygenation, the girl developed rapidly progressing severe respiratory failure necessitating reintubation and hour-long manual ventilation, while copious amounts of hemorrhagic frothy fluids were aspirated through the endotracheal tube.

Differential diagnosis of T2 hypointense masses in musculoskeletal MRI.

Skeletal Radiol 2021 Mar 2. Epub 2021 Mar 2.

Department of Radiology, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Memorial Hospital, 1611 NW 12th Ave, JMH WW 279, Miami, FL, 33136, USA.

Many soft tissue masses have an indeterminate appearance on MRI, often displaying varying degrees and extent of T2 hyperintensity. However, a subset of neoplasms and tumor-like lesions may exhibit prominent areas of T2 hypointensity relative to skeletal muscle. The hypointensity observed on T2-weighted MRI can be caused by a variety of substances, including evolving blood products, calcifications or other inorganic crystals, or fibrous tissue. Read More

Denosumab Treatment for Giant Cell Tumors, Aneurysmal Bone Cysts, and Fibrous Dysplasia-Risks and Benefits.

Curr Osteoporos Rep 2021 Apr 22;19(2):141-150. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Skeletal Disorders and Mineral Homeostasis Section, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health, Building 30 Room 228 MSC 4320, Bethesda, MD, 20892, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review summarizes current understanding of the role of denosumab, an inhibitor of receptor activator of nuclear kappa-B ligand (RANKL), in the management of 3 skeletal neoplasms: giant cell tumors, aneurysmal bone cysts, and fibrous dysplasia.

Recent Findings: A growing body of literature supports denosumab use in giant cell tumors, a neoplasm in which RANKL plays a clear pathogenic role. Comparatively less data is available in aneurysmal bone cysts and fibrous dysplasia; however, the pathogenic similarity of these disorders to giant cell tumors, as well as encouraging preliminary data, suggests denosumab may be useful.

Ubiquitin-specific Peptidase 6 ()-associated Fibroblastic/Myofibroblastic Tumors: Evolving Concepts.

Cancer Genomics Proteomics 2021 Mar-Apr;18(2):93-101

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Fukuoka University, Fukuoka, Japan.

Ubiquitin-specific peptidase 6 (USP6) is a hominoid-specific gene residing on chromosome 17p13 and serves as a deubiquitinating enzyme with a diverse set of functions including intracellular trafficking, inflammatory signaling, cell transformation and protein turnover. USP6 rearrangements were first identified in aneurysmal bone cysts, resulting in promoter swapping and over-expression of wild type USP6. Several morphologically overlapping fibroblastic/myofibroblastic tumors are known to harbor USP6 rearrangements, including nodular fasciitis, cellular fibroma of tendon sheath, myositis ossificans and fibro-osseous pseudotumor of digits.

Novel partners of USP6 gene in a spectrum of bone and soft tissue lesions.

Virchows Arch 2021 Feb 9. Epub 2021 Feb 9.

Service d'anatomie et cytologie pathologiques, CHRU de Tours, Avenue de la République, 37044 Cedex 9, Tours, France.

Nodular fasciitis, primary aneurysmal bone cyst, myositis ossificans, and their related lesions are benign tumors that share common histological features and a chromosomal rearrangement involving the ubiquitin-specific peptidase 6 (USP6) gene. The identification of an increasing number of new partners implicated in USP6 rearrangements demonstrates a complex tumorogenesis of this tumor spectrum. In this study on a series of 77 tumors (28 nodular fasciitis, 42 aneurysmal bone cysts, and 7 myositis ossificans) from the database of the French Sarcoma Group, we describe 7 new partners of the USP6 gene.

Efficacy of Lesion Specific Portals in Endoscopic Treatment of Calcaneal Bone Cyst: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Jan 26;57(2). Epub 2021 Jan 26.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Soonchunhyang University Seoul Hospital, 59, Daesagwan-ro, Yongsan-gu, Seoul 04401, Korea.

Calcaneal bone cysts rarely occur and most of them are known to be benign. Among them, simple bone cysts (SBCs) third most commonly occur in the calcaneus and of the many surgical treatment options, endoscopic curettage is recently gaining popularity among surgeons due to its advantages of minimal invasiveness and optimal visualization. As for portal placement for endoscopy, two lateral portals are considered a standard technique, but no rationale has been established for SBCs with abnormal geometry. Read More
