A case of osteosarcoma in a 14 month old girl is reported. The child presented with a history of difficulty in standing for 2 months and x-rays revealed an osteolytic lesion in the upper third of the femur associated with widening of bone and periosteal reaction. Osteosarcoma was diagnosed by biopsy. Treatment was refused and the child died 13 weeks later. Only one other case of osteosarcoma in a child as young as 14 months has been reported. A review of literature showed 22 cases of osteosarcoma in children aged 5 years or younger.
