Radiologic-pathologic findings of primary osseous adamantinoma with unusual metastasis to the posterior cul-de-sac in pregnancy

Clin Imaging. 2011 Nov-Dec;35(6):483-7. doi: 10.1016/j.clinimag.2011.02.001.


Adamantinoma is a rare primary bone malignancy with a predilection for the tibial cortex. Metastases have been reported to the long bones, lung, pleura and spine. We present a 26-year-old pregnant woman with metastatic disease to the posterior cul-de-sac, lungs, liver and retroperitoneum, which collectively have not been previously reported in a single patient to our knowledge.
