ABSTRACT
Telangiectatic osteosarcoma is a rare subtype of osteosarcoma. The commonly existed delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis potentially impairs the outcome and the prognosis. We experienced a case of telangiectatic osteosarcoma presenting as rare refractory hemorrhage, who suffered poor prognosis. Thereafter, we present the case of the telangiectatic osteosarcoma with rare manifestation to avoid further misdiagnosis and improve the outcome and diagnosis.
