Abstract

Between 1974 and 1982, twelve patients with malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the femur and tibia were treated by excision and adjuvant chemotherapy. During the same time-period, eighteen patients were treated by excision alone. The disease-free survival rate among the former was 59 per cent (seven of twelve). There was only one survival in the latter group.
