That primary tumours can occur in multiple sites, is now well established. Reticulum cell sarcoma of the bone is not a very rare tumour. Parker and Jackson (1939) reported 17 cases of what they called reticulum cell sarccma of bone. The tumour occurred in all age groups, in both cylindrical and flat bones, caused extensive bone destruction and soft tissue growth and though often diagnosed late, showed a somewhat better prognosis than Ewing’s Tumour. This was the first reported account of this tumour as an entity, in which the comparatively good response to therapy was associated with a specific tumour cell morphology. Reticulum cell sarcoma of multicentric origin in bones is quite rare. Few cases of multifocal osteogenic sarcoma in bones have been reported, but a reference of reticulum cell sarcoma with multiple bone involvement could not be traced in the available literature. Three cases of reticulum cell sarcoma of bone with multiple bone involvement seen in our department within a period of 2 years are presented in this paper.
