Infrequent Case of Aneurysmal Bone Cyst in First Decade with Femur Neck Fracture and its Management Strategy
Tiwari V  | Shetty V
Abstract: Tumor and tumor like lesions are relatively common in the growing skeleton, with proximal femur being the most common site. Bony lesions in children occur generally in the 2nd decade of life. Ma- jority of these lesions are asymptomatic and may present with impending fractures making the di- agnosis difficult and potentially challenging. Pathologic fractures due to benign bone lesions in children and adolescents should be approached in a systematic fashion in order to ensure appropri- ate management. Natural history, cause and treatment should be taken into account while managing these fractures. Surgical treatment in these cases are aimed at eradicating the lesion while simulta- neously providing good stabilisation.
