Adamantinoma is a rare bone tumor, most of which originates in the long bone. Here, we present a case of adamantinoma of the rib with liver metastasis.
The patient, a 69-year-old man, complained of dull chest pain for over 6 months. Chest X-ray and CT film revealed osteolytic mass of the right 7th rib. Under the clinical diagnosis of hepatic tumor with rib metastasis, resection of the rib and partial hepatectomy were performed. Pathologically, the bone tumor was diagnosed as primary adamantinoma and the liver tumor was its metastasis. The patient has been well without adjuvant chemotherapy for 5 years after the operation.
