High power photomicrograph shows chondroid tissue being formed by aggressive-appearing osteoblastic cells, as demonstrated by the hyperchromatic and pleomorphic nuclear patterns. The presence of osteoid formation in a few areas determined the diagnosis of periosteal osteogenic sarcoma. This patient was treated with a below-knee amputation.
