Abstract

We report a case which highlights the progression of osteofibrous dysplasia to adamantinoma and questions whether intralesional curettage is the appropriate treatment. The role of a joint-sparing massive endoprosthesis using cortical fixation is demonstrated and we describe a unique biomedical design which resulted in the manufacture of an end cap to allow amputation through a custom-made proximal tibial replacement, rather than an above-knee amputation following recurrence.
