Aggressive osteoblastoma. A case report and review of the literature. Kenan S, Floman Y, Robin GC, Laufer A. A recurrent osteoblastoma involving the acetabulum in a 27-year-old woman was found to be locally aggressive and histologically appeared to become more anaplastic with each recurrence. However, there was no evidence of distant metastases Aggressive osteoblastoma may develop from osteoid osteoma, going through plain osteoblastoma as an intermediate stage6, but in most cases their aggressive nature is Received November 25, 1983. Accepted July 18, 1984 apparent from the beginning Aggressive osteoblastoma is a rare tumor of the acetabulum. It is characterized by: 1 1. Age range from 7 to 80 years. 2. Wide and irregular trabeculae. 3. Osteoid laid down in non-trabecular pattern. 4. Epithelioid osteoblasts. 5. Absence of cartilage. 6. Osteoclast-like giant cells. 7. Variable stroma. 8. Low mitotic activity. 9. Absence of metastase
Aggressive osteoblastoma is one such subtype. As the name implies, the histologic features of aggressive osteoblastoma may appear malignant, and its biologic behavior may separate it from conventional osteoblastoma. We report a case of aggressive osteoblastoma occurring in the femoral diaphysis of a 12-year-old girl; this osetoblastoma was. Aggressive osteoblastoma is a rare primary bone neoplasm with the potential for local invasion and recurrence. While the vertebrae or long bones are most commonly affected, few well-documented cases have been reported in the jaws An aggressive osteoblastoma is a rare tumor that represents a borderline lesion between a benign osteoblastoma and cancerous osteosarcoma (11). Physical presentation of an aggressive osteoblastoma of the hip includes limited range of motion (ROM), chronic pain, night pain, radiating pain, pain aggravated by weight-bearing or walking, and pain alleviated by analgesic drugs (5,9,11,12,14)
Aggressive osteoblastoma is a borderline lesion lesion between osteoblastoma and osteosarcoma. It is not a precursor to osteosarcoma. It does not metastasize. Aggressive osteoblastomas usually occur in an older age group than conventional osteoblastoma Aggressive variant of OB is histologically intermediate between an indolent conventional OB and a malignant osteosarcoma. To the best of our knowledge, aggressive osteoblastoma (AO) affecting the craniovertebral junction has not been previously described in the literature Aggressive osteoblastoma (AO), a very rare tumour that represents a borderline lesion between CO and osteosarcoma. They are tumours that recur but do not metastasise. They are characterised microscopically by the presence of the so-called epithelioid osteoblasts. 8
Osteoblastoma is a benign osteogenic bone tumour. Despite having a benign character, a small subgroup referred to as aggressive or epithelioid osteoblastoma can exhibit locally aggressive behaviour Aggressive osteoblastoma (AO) is a rare variant of osteoblastoma characterized histologically by epithelioid osteoblasts and clinically by local recurrences if not excised completely. Aggressive osteoblastoma has been described in various unusual sites; however, based on our search of the literature, involvement of the tarsal navicular has not been previously described Osteoblastoma (OBL) is a benign bone tumor with considerable recurrence potential. By definition, the lesion size at diagnosis is above 2 cm [ 1 ]. Enneking stage 3 (st. 3) tumors are classified as rapidly growing lesions, with invasive extracapsular or extracompartmental extensions and rarely with metastases [ 2 ] Osteoblastoma is an uncommon osteoid tissue-forming primary neoplasm of the bone. It has clinical and histologic manifestations similar to those of osteoid osteoma; therefore, some consider the two tumors to be variants of the same disease, with osteoblastoma representing a giant osteoid osteoma Abstract: Aggressive osteoblastoma is a type of bone tumor rarely reported in veterinary literature. Osteoblastoma may be misdiagnosed as an osteosarcoma, which is a well-understood malignant bone tumor. Owing to poor prognosis, animals diagnosed with osteosarcom
Osteoblastoma is a rare benign neoplasm, accounting for 1% of all primary and 3% of benign bone tumors. It affects mainly adolescents and young adults (mean age, 20 years) with a male predominance (2.5 to 1). The more aggressive forms are generally seen in slightly older patients with a mean age of 33 years We report an uncommon case of osteoid osteoma recurring as an aggressive osteoblastoma of the spine. A 15-years-old male consulted in our department with long-term painful scoliosis. The CT-scans and MRI revealed a sclerotic bone forming tumor of 7mm diameter consistent with a osteoid osteoma For osteoblastoma, with its predilection for the spinal column and appendicular skeleton, the skull is an unusual site, and paranasal sinus involvement is very rare. Herein, we report on a case in which the disease was located within the sphenoid bone. To the best of our knowledge, this is the 4th reported case of osteoblastoma with a sphenoid origin (1) Osteoblastomas are rare bone-producing neoplasms that generally occur in the young and can be misdiagnosed as an osteosarcoma if correlation with clinical history, radiology, and histology is not c..
Osteoblastoma is a rare, benign osteoblastic (bone) tumor that most commonly develops in the spine, sacrum, long bones, and flat bones. Benign tumors do not spread to various sites or organs. However, an aggressive type of osteoblastoma has been identified in very rare occasions that have led to metastasis, death, and mimicked osteosarcoma Borderline osteoblastic tumors: problems in the differential diagnosis of aggressive osteoblastoma and low-grade osteosarcoma.

Epithelioid osteoblastoma or aggressive osteoblastoma of the astragalus. Presentation of a case and revision of clinical and pathological symptoms By A. Alcántara-Vázquez, S. Castillo-Guitarrero, J.A. Enríquez-Castro and M. Hernández-Gonzále The entity aggressive osteoblastoma was introduced by Dorfman and Weiss (1984) and Lucas et al.(1994) to describe lesions with features borderline between osteoblastoma and osteosarcoma. In OS cases, a permeative pattern of growth within intratrabecular spaces and a lack of maturation toward the periphery of the lesion have been described So-called aggressive osteoblastoma is a rare variant of osteoblastoma, believed to be more locally aggressive than conventional osteoblastoma. It is primarily defined by epithelioid osteoblasts, cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm twice the size of conventional osteoblasts

Abstract Osteoblastoma is a bone forming tumor with histological features highly similar to osteoid osteoma; the discrimination between the tumor types is based on size and growth pattern. The vast majority of osteoblastomas are benign but there is a group of so-called aggressive osteoblastomas that can be diagnostically challenging at the.
Aggressive osteoblastoma is rarely reported in the jaw bones (4-7) with very few cases being reported in the maxilla (8,9). Here, we report a case of aggressive osteoblastoma of the maxilla in a 7-yr old boy. Case report A 7-yr old boy presented with a slow growing painless swelling on left upper jaw for one year Diagnosing osteoblastoma can be a challenge. Osteoblastomas are very similar to the more aggressive osteosarcoma and the less aggressive osteoid osteoma. Each tumor type follows a different course and is treated differently. In many cases, the diagnosis of osteoblastoma is suggested by the tumor location, size, and appearance on X-ray We present a unique case of aggressive osteoblastoma arising from thyroid cartilage.

NSAIDs. Osteoblastoma can be locally aggressive; osteoid osteoma lacks growth potential. Osteoid osteoma may be managed nonsurgically with NSAIDs. When surgery is required, minimally invasive methods (eg, CT-guided excision, radiofrequency ablation) are preferred. Osteoblastoma has a higher rate of recurrence tha Osteoblastoma is a benign, primary neoplasm of the bone. Histologically, osteoblastoma is similar to osteoid osteoma.
