Intra-articular malignant lesions of the hip present significant challenges. Resection often requires large resection of the acetabular bone and pelvic columns. Concurrent reconstruction options after intra-articular hip tumors are challenging and may necessitate the use of techniques and implants with uncertain long-term survivorship. We present a case of an intra-articular hip malignancy with extra-articular resection and preservation of the acetabular columns with reconstruction using a cementless acetabular shell fixed with screws.
