A 76-year-old male who gave a history of a soft tissue sarcoma in his thigh that was treated by surgical resection and radiation therapy ten years ago presented with symptoms of pain in the thigh area for the past three months. This AP radiograph shows a bone-forming tumor arising from the mid-diaphysis of the femur. It has a fluffy chaotic pattern strongly suggestive of the diagnosis of osteosarcoma which was proven on biopsy.
