RODRIGUEZ RODRIGUEZ, Eugenio Isidro et al. Incidence of tumors and osseous pseudotumoral lesions in children. AMC [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.5, pp. 498-506. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background: osseous tumors are divided into benign and malignant. In order to establish a diagnosis there must be a close relationship among the orthopedist, the radiologist, and the specialist in pathological anatomy. The pediatric age is the group in which this type of tumor appears more frequently. Objective: to determine what the most frequent tumors and osseous pseudotumoral lesions are in minors under 19 years old in a five-year study. Method: a descriptive, longitudinal study was conducted through a review of the pathological anatomy archive of the Eduardo Agramonte Piña Teaching Pediatric Hospital of Camagüey. All the under-19s cases with the histopathological diagnosis of osseous tumors and pseudotumoral lesions from January 1st 2008 to December 31st 2013 were studied. The source of information was the register of biopsies of the department of Pathological Analysis. The obtained data were compiled in a form designed for this purpose. Results: benign osseous tumors had a greatest incidence and among them, the osteochondroma, the non-ossifying fibroma, the aneurysmal osseous cyst, and the chondroma. The most frequent age group with osseous tumors was between 10 and 14 years old. Conclusions: the results of the study are comparable to what reported in the medical bibliography, where benign osseous tumors are the most frequent and among them the osteochondroma.
