In this paper we present a 25 years old male patient presenting with a 2 years history of pain and swelling around left knee with aggressive growth of tumor leading to restricted mobility and pathological fracture in left tibia with severe emaciation. He presented late to our hospital, 6 months after noticing wound over the left knee. Diagnosis of tumor is important especially in early stage for improving prognosis.
