Abstract

Since osteosarcoma rarely localizes in the spine, its occurrence in the cervical spine of a child who had an astrocytoma of the cervical spinal cord that was treated with radiation therapy is of interest. The sarcoma, which developed eleven years after irradiation and three years after spine fusion for a progressive kyphoscoliosis, apparently originated in the fusion mass.
