Extract

The field of musculoskeletal oncology is broad and includes the study and treatment of a rare group of connective-tissue tumors. Although these tumors are uncommon, they can have devastating consequences for the life and the limb of the patient. In this field, which involves not only orthopaedics but other subspecialties as well, there is a rapid explosion of new information each year from a variety of fronts. I will try to summarize the important findings as reported both in the literature and at tumor meetings in 1999 and 2000. I will focus primarily on malignant neoplasms of bone and soft tissue.
