Osteogenic sarcoma is an aggressive malignant bone tumor arising from primitive mesenchymal bone-forming cells. Ossification is the characteristic feature of the metastases in osteosarcoma which aids their detection on 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy. Although lung is the most common site of metastasis in osteogenic sarcoma, pleural involvement with effusion and skip metastases are rare. Herein, we report a case of osteogenic sarcoma of distal femur with diffuse calcified pleural thickening leading to malignant pleural effusion, calcified lung, lymph node, and bone metastases illustrated on bone scan.
