Abstract

Lymphangioma of the bone is a benign lesion, characterized by newly formed lymph vessels. It usually occurs in a diffuse manner or as multiple lesions. Solitary lymphangioma of the bone is an extremely rare condition, We herein describe a case of solitary lymphangioma of the femur in a 55-year-old woman who presented with knee pain. Radiographs showed an eccentric osteolytic lesion in the distal femur. This is the first reported case of solitary lymphangioma of the bone occurring in the femur.
