This mass had been biopsied previously at a peripheral hospital and the specimen showed no signs of malignancy. As can be seen from the photograph on the previous page the mass was very large. ON Straight x ray the appearance is of a benign lesion with a soap bubble appearance. It has deformed and expanded the whole femoral shaft down to the level of the femoral condyles.
Biopsy again showed no signs of malignancy and consisted of fibrous tissue.
