Abstract EN

A one-year-old female presented with right thigh soft tissue fungating tumor, which was diagnosed previously as soft tissue sarcoma.

Amputation was recommended several times, but her father refused.

The case was delayed with extended tumor including the whole thigh and became infected.

Wide resection of the tumor was performed and the very small remaining part of quadriceps was sutured to cover the bone.

Primary closure of the wound without skin graft was performed.

The patient was discharged in a good condition.

Upon follow-up a few weeks later, she was walking independently with healed surgical site.
