A resection of the lesion was done and ileofemoral arthrodesis was done as a secondary operation through a Ludlof medial incision. A hip spica was applied. The patient was given deep neutron radiotherapy as the excision had been marginal. When seen 1 year later the patient was ambulant. A relatively painless pseudarthrosis was present at the arthrodesis site.
