Abstract

Primary sarcomas of the sternum are infrequent; the most common histological types are chondrosarcoma, plasmacytoma, Ewing's sarcoma and Hodgkin's tumors. Since osteosarcoma of the sternum is a very rare entity, we have thought to explain the principal characteristics and the clinical and therapeutic approach based on our experience of two cases.
