Multifocal Osteogenic Sarcoma in a Patient with Congenital Skeletal Dysplasia Associated with Hyperphosphatasemia
In recent years, the expanding panorama of congenital skeletal dysplasia has increased, of which the differential diagnosis is often difficult to establish. Here, we report a case of a young man suffering from a congenital skeletal dysplasia, associated with hyperphosphatasemia, who additionally developed an osteogenic sarcoma of the skull. Some diagnostic problems of congenital hyperphosphatasemia and the relationship between skeletal dysplasia and malignant bone tumors will be discussed.
