Pulmonary metastasis even at diagnosis or during treatment is an important problem in osteosarcoma treatment and treatment modality varies in patients with metastasis. Metastasectomy and aggressive induction chemotherapy are the 2 most well-known treatment options. However, reactivation of pulmonary tuberculosis can be a problem in developing countries, where the prevalence of tuberculosis is high.
