Abstract
A 14-old girl presented to the general hospital with a fracture of the proximal metaphysis of the right humerus. Conventional radiography, CT and MR imaging revealed simple bone cyst of the right humerus. Percutaneous autologous marrow and MIIGTM115 injection into simple bone cyst were performed under general anesthesia. But the patient did not fully regain consciousness and showed no response to central pain. The post-interventional cardiac echocardiogram demonstrated pulmonary embolism. Despite subsequent thrombolytic therapy, the patient died 1hour later. The legal autopsy was performed at National Institute of Scientific Investigation.
Key Words: simple bone cyst, percutaneous autologous marrow and MIIGTM115 injection
