JBST- Special APMSTS 2018 Issue

It gives us immense pleasure in presenting the special IMSOS (Indian Musculoskeletal Oncology Society) issue of Journal of bone and soft tissue tumors on the occasion of the 12th Asia Pacific Musculoskeletal Tumor Society meeting, Jaipur, India. It’s only the second time, the first being in 2002, that APMSTS conference is being held in India. It is being co-hosted by the IMSOS, a relatively new body comprising of mostly the young but enthusiastic clinicians and paramedical staff involved in sarcoma care in India. Under the able presidentship of Dr Ajay Puri, a veteran in the field, the 12th APMSTS is all set to give the delegates a memorable experience. It’s but natural that Dr Ajay Puri, President – APMSTS 2018 and IMSOS has penned the guest editorial for this issue.

JBST (Journal of bone and soft tissue tumors) is proud to be associated with IMSOS as its official journal. All the members of IMSOS have contributed wholeheartedly to this issue echoing the theme of APMSTS 2018: “Education – Collaboration – Innovation”. The issue comprises of original articles on the data from institutes located across India on varied topics ranging from demographics of sarcoma in eastern India to osteosarcoma of facial bones from South India to recent topics like post denosumab changes in the histopathology of Giant cell tumors from western India. Even the case reports, which are rare clinical presentations of pathologies like osseous hydatid cyst, chordoma, clear cell chondrosarcoma, sacral inclusion cyst, hold a high educational value.

We also take this opportunity to invite all delegates to submit to Journal of Bone and Soft tissue tumors, which is one of the few journals that publish bone tumor research. We have a great editorial board and an online submission and review system. JBST has completed four years now and we are committed to make JBST the best resource for publishing bone tumor research in the world. This can be only achieved by co-operation and collaboration from all of you

We are happy to present this issue at the 12th APMSTS at Jaipur. Hope you will enjoy it as much as the vibrant, colourful and warm Indian hospitality.
