Abstract

Skip metastasis is rare in high-grade osteosarcoma and indicates a very poor prognosis. The authors describe two patients who had high-grade osteosarcoma and skip metastasis. MRI detected the skip lesion in both patients, and both lesions were confirmed by histology. The patients were treated with adjuvant chemotherapy and radical surgical resection. Both are alive and free of disease 3 and 6 years from diagnosis.
