Association of osteosarcoma with certain syndromes is well known, but the incidence varies from one report to another, and from one syndrome to another, Ruthmond syndrome is the most common syndrome reported to be associated while others like Blackfan Diamond anemia and Osteogenesis imperfect are very rarely associated, and others like Osteopoikelosis are never reported to be associated with Osteosarcoma. Retrospectively we reviewed files of all patients diagnosed to have osteosarcoma during the period from January 2003 till December 2011, information regarding presence of syndromatic features, current condition of the patient whether alive or death or lost and whether had localized or metastatic disease at diagnosis were recorded.
