Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma of Mandible in an 11 Year Old: A Rare Case Report

Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is a rare, but high-grade malignancy arising from the skeletal or surrounding soft tissues. It is an unusual variant, a separate but distinct entity from conventional or dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma and constitutes fewer than 2% of all chondrosarcomas. We report a case of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma of the mandible in an 11 year old male child. Only 15 cases of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma have been reported in the mandible of patients less than 20 years old. We discuss the clinical presentation, radiologic findings, micr oscopic findings, immunohistochemistry and management of the case. Surgical treatment positively impacts survival, while role of chemotherapy and radiation needs to be studied further.
