Abstract

Low-grade central osteosarcoma accounts for 1-2% of all osteosarcomas, and is usually found in long bones of extremities.  To our best knowledge, low-grade central osteosarcoma of pelvic bone is unusually rare.  We report a case of low-grade central osteosarcoma in the ilium of a 36-year-old man. Our case appears to be the first well-illustrated imagings for this location.  Differential diagnosis includes fibrous dysplasia and conventional fibroblastic type osteosarcoma. The awareness of this entity should lead to avoid over or under treatment.
