Extra Skeletal Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma - A Rare Case Report

Mathumithra T, Koteeshwaran G, Jeevaraj G


Abstract: Extra skeletal Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma (EMC) is a rare neoplasm of soft tissues. A number of case reports have been published in literature from time to time, yet it reveals difficulties in treatment and prognostication. Here is a rare case report of an elderly female who presented with a wrist swelling. X-ray revealed a extra osseous soft tissue lesion with specks of calcification. Patient underwent a local excision, which on histopathological examination revealed mesenchymal chondrosarcoma. This case report is an attempt to emphasize the rarity of the lesion, to stress the need for extensive sampling and to include it in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue lesions with calcification, especially in young people. The treatment includes aggressive surgery with chemotherapy.
