Periosteal osteosarcoma


Periosteal osteosarcoma is the second most common type of juxtacortical osteosarcoma after parosteal osteosarcoma accounting for 1.5% of all osteosarcomas. Patients typically present in the 2nd or 3rd decade of life, with a characteristic location along the diaphyses of long bones, most commonly the tibia.

The prognosis for periosteal osteosarcoma is better than other subtypes of osteosarcomas, but worse than parosteal osteosarcoma.
