Case Study
The article presents a case study of a seventeen-year-old boy with Rothmund-Thomson Syndrome, with metatarsal osteosarcoma. The muscle pull on the boy's foot was balanced through ray amputation with tendon transfers. The incidental occurrence of infectious mononucleosis and hypersplenism resulted in complications in the treatment of the tumor.
