The pathological specimens of the femur consisted of several pale wedges measuring up to 2 cm across. On section, there was gritting. Fewer much smaller fragments were submitted from the foot. Microscopic examination of formol-saline fixed specimens followed classical procedures ending in H&E staining. The femur showed bone riddled with epithelial malignancy in which there were well differentiated glands. With regard to the foot, bone was scarcely present, much of the tissue being so necrotic that cancer cells were few and scattered among the abundant purulent materials. Figure 1 depicts the following appearances. The arrows point to the diminishing remnants of bone, while “A” indicates the malignant lesion whereas “B” is the necrotic portion.
