Bone infarction of the distal femur is reported in two patients with osteosarcoma of the leg (1 tibia, 1 fibula) treated by preoperative chemotherapy including intraarterial chemotherapy (IAC) by Cis-platinum. Both patients were examined by magnetic resonance imaging before chemotherapy and again prior to limb salvage surgery. The location of these lesions in the distal femur must suggest bone infarction especially if the tumor has decreased in size under treatment.
