Özet

Osteosarcoma is the most common primary malignant tumor of the bone. The most common sites of osteosarcoma in children are the metaphysis of long bones, especially the distal femur, proximal tibia, and proximal humerus. It occurs very rarely in flat bones. Here we report a 14-year-old adolescent boy with primary osteosarcoma of the fifth rib and a review of literature.
