Abstract


Chondrosarcoma is a rare cartilaginous malignant tumor which occur extreme rarely in head and neck. We are presenting a case report of a recurrent Chondrosarcoma of upper alveolus in a 27 years old male patient presented at our institute with a large proliferative swelling arising from the hard palate. Punch biopsy from the growth was suggestive of high grade Chondrosarcoma. Imaging with MRI showed an altered signal intensity lesion involving hard palate and upper alveolus with erosion of floor and medial wall of left maxillary sinus. The patient underwent bilateral partial maxillectomy with stable post-operative course. Final histopathology was Chondrosarcoma poorly differentiated grade 3. We are hereby discussing the clinicopathological & radiological features of this case along with a review of the Chondrosarcoma.
