Abstract: Chondrosarcomas are malignant mesenchymal neoplasm with cartilaginous differentiation of bone and soft tissue. It is an uncommon primary malignant neoplasm of maxillofacial regions. Majority of chondrosarcomas of head and neck arise from maxilla, with very few cases arise from the mandible. The clinicopathological and radiographic features are usually characteristic; however, not decisive. CS is usually treated by wide surgical resection and is relatively chemoradioresistant. Radiotherapy is usually advised for high-grade lesions, and chemotherapy has a palliative role. Here we present a case high grade chondrosarcoma treated by surgery and adjuvant chemoradiotherapy.
