  • Low-grade malignant fibrogenic tumor of bone
  • Epidemiology
    • incidence
      • extremely rare
    • demographics
      • usually occurs in adolescence and young adults (15-25)
    • body location
      • mandible and metaphysis of long bones
  • Prognosis
    • recurrence rate of 40%
Symptoms
  • Presentation
    • painful lesion
Imaging
  • Radiographs
    • findings
      • purely lytic lesion
      • soap bubble appearance (internal pseudotrabeculatins)
      • endosteal scalloping
      • may involve cortex
      • may have soft tissue mass
Histology
  • Classic characteristics are
    • dense swirling fibrous spindle cells  
    • mature fibroblasts without cellular atypia 
    • abundant bundles of collagen 
Treatment
  • Operative
    • wide surgical resection vs. intralesional curretage
      • indications
        • wide surgical resection recommended to avoid recurrence
