Stephen N Ponnampalam, Wilkinson YJ Tan, Nayyer Naveed Wazir and John George (2012). Unusual cause of neuropathy:extensive dural spread of primary cervical osteosarcoma. Acta Radiologica Short Reports 1(1): 6
We report a very rare case of a high grade osteosarcoma of the cervical spine in a 62-year-old woman. She presented with a relatively short history of a swelling in the posterior neck and cervical lymphadenopathy. This was associated with hoarseness of the voice, signiﬁcant weight loss, and right upper arm radicular symptoms initially, progressing to paraplegia. Based on MR and CT imaging of the neck and an excision biopsy of an enlarged right supraclavicular lymph node, the histology revealed a high grade primary osteosarcoma of the cervical spine.
