Abstract
Osteosarcoma of the thoracic spine developed in a 15-year-old Japanese boy, After his first admission with paralysis, multiple skeletal meta stases were demonstrated in the absence of pulmonary metastasis. This rare condition may possibly be considered as a unicentric osteosarcoma with bone metastases, since there were no precursor lesions or histor y of exposure to radioactive materials or chemical agents. These multi ple lesions may be an example of so-called ''organ-specific metastasis ,'' although this ''nonstochastic'' process is rare.
