Abstract

We report a case of this rare tumor and describe the surgical approach that we adopted and the clinical outcome; we also report his condition at 24 months follow-up. Although treatment was with radical surgery, sufficient shoulder function could be obtained in our patient. We also describe the interesting MR findings of this tumor which correlated well with the histopathologic findings.
