After the pathologic diagnosis was obtained, the patient was given several nonoperative and surgical options for treatment. She ultimately elected for a staged open posterior and arthroscopic anterior intralesional resection (Figures 4, 5).

The surgeries occurred 7 weeks apart. During the second arthroscopic stage, she simultaneously underwent chondroplasty and partial medial and lateral meniscectomies. By 6 weeks after her second surgery, she had regained full range of motion and function. She returned to all of her normal activities with no pain. Because of the extensive amount of anatomic tumor infiltration, she remains at high risk for tumor recurrence. However, as of the time of publication, she has demonstrated no such evidence.
