Femoral Neck Tumors
Whereas malignant bone lesions of the femoral neck are very rare in childhood, benign ones are common. However, because of their location, even a benign lesion is potentially serious. Complications such as pathologic fracture, coxa vara and leg shortening are to be expected. Diagnosis in many cases is by radiography, as the femoral neck is not easily accessible to surgery and biopsy increases the possibility of complications. The “wait and see” approach is common in cases diagnosed radiographically as benign lesions.
