 Abstract:

  Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is a rare and fatal tumor. MPNST is very aggressive and likes to have distant metastasis. Skeletal involvement is usually secondary to soft tissue origin. Tumors of the scapula are unusual clinical challenges. Partial or complete resection of the scapula, with its attached musculo-aponeurotic tissue, is a seldom used technique for the treatment of primary bone and soft tissue tumors, as well as selected metastatic involvement of the scapula. Scapulectomy may allow wide margins of resection without amputation. The purpose of this study is to review our recent experience with scapulectomy. Our patient had local recurrence of tumor two years after subtotal scapulectomy.
