Fibrosarcoma of the Sacrum in a Child: Management by Sacral Resection and Reconstruction


ABSTRACT: We describe the diagnosis and surgical  management of fibrosarcoma of the  sacrum in a pediatric patient. We retrospectively reviewed the literature and a case report.  Total sacrectomy is a viable treatment option in the management of large malignant sacral  tumors. The techniques used in adult patients can be extended to and improved upon for  pediatric patients. The input of multiple surgical specialties is essential in the management of these lesions.
