Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cardiac metastasis and hypertrophic osteoarthropathy are both quite rare. We describe a patient presenting with hypertrophic osteoarthropathy as the first symptom of recurrent infantile fibrosarcoma (IF). During surgical resection of lung metastasis, the patient suffered sudden cardiac arrest. Autopsy demonstrated a metastatic lesion in the intraventricular septum of the heart, which is previously undescribed in the literature. This case demonstrates that IF can be aggressive despite its more typical benign course. Pediatr Blood Cancer © 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
