Seven of these were excluded from further analyses: five low-grade osteosarcomas (three low-grade central and two parosteal), one osteosarcoma occurred as a secondary malignancy (following B-cell lymphoma), and one benign bone lesion originally misdiagnosed as osteosarcoma, leaving 23 patients with primary high-grade osteosarcomas for statistical analyses (Table 1).
The most frequent one is the t(3;12)(q27-q28;q14-q15), which is recurrent in lipomas (of soft as well as parosteal tumor) and fuses LPP with HMGA2 [29].

Conventional lipomas can arise in subcutaneous tissue (superficial lipoma), in deep soft tissue (deep lipoma) or on surface of bone (parosteal lipoma).

Extraskeletal LGO displays histologic features resembling those of a parosteal osteosarcoma but without adipose component nor connection with the underlying bone [9].
Types (histologic subtypes) of osteosarcoma include intramedullary (osteoblastic, chondroblastic, fibroblastic, small cell, telangiectatic, high-grade, low-grade central), surface (parosteal, periosteal, high-grade), and extraskeletal variants.
We think that the cause of this at the initial period of regeneration is presence of massive parosteal and periosteal calluses closely attached to the surrounding soft tissue with good vascularization and incomplete development of endosteal callus.
