A 58-year-old male with multiple enchondromas experienced malignant degeneration of one into a chondrosarcoma
of the distal femur.
are divided into two types: conventional and variant.
Malignancies included osteosarcoma, fibrosarcoma, chondrosarcoma
, and malignant fibrous histiocytoma.
Histological examination (Fig 2) showed the mass to be a chondrosarcoma
of bone, there are no differentiated cartilage cells with distinct lacunae seen.
18-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (F18 FDG) uptake has been shown to be proportional to tumor grade, with high standardized uptake values predictive of highergrade chondrosarcomas
With characteristic determination Ann tracked down Professor Michael Gleeson, a head and neck surgeon who had operated on 13 patients with Cranial Chondrosarcoma
This randomized, double-blind trial is designed to compare the safety and efficacy of IPI-926 to matching placebo in patients with metastatic or locally advanced, inoperable chondrosarcoma
On MRI, low grade, differentiated chondrosarcomas
will appear bright on T2 imaging, with more homogeneous signal than that of higher-grade lesions.
It represents only 2% to 10% of all chondrosarcomas
(2-7) and has a frequency of 0.
8) The majority are chondrosarcomas
, however, osteosarcomas and malignant fibrous histiocytomas have been reported.
Background & Purpose: Chondrosarcomas
compose 25% of malignant bone tumors and are the third most common type of primary bone tumor.
