Sonu Yadav, Uma Sharma, Tanvi Mittal, Sweta .


Osteosarcoma is rare, accounting for less than 1% of adult malignancies and 3–6% at the pediatric age, with peak incidences in adolescence and after 60 years of age.1 The incidence of osteosarcoma in the bones of hand has been reported to be low, around 0.9%.1 We report a 37-year-old female patient who presented with swelling in the distal phalanx of ring finger of left hand since 3 months associated with pain. Imaging studies were consistent with a destructive lesion. Histological examination revealed osteoblastic osteosarcoma of phalanx.
