Abstract

Fibrosarcomas of the bones of the hand are very rare entities. We present a case of low-grade fibrosarcoma of the left third metacarpal that was successfully treated by preoperative intraarterial chemotherapy, wide local excision, and immediate reconstruction with a vascularized bone graft from the ipsilateral radius. Excellent hand function has been preserved and the patient remains free of recurrence 5 years after presentation.
