Radiation-induced periosteal osteosarcoma

Radiation-induced sarcomas are a well-recognized late complication of radiation therapy. We present a rare case of a periosteal osteosarcoma of the femur developing 10 years after radiation treatment for a soft tissue sarcoma to highlight the clinical and radiological features of this rare complication of therapy and to describe its management.
