TSHITAKE, TG; GOLELE, R; SKOSANA, KC  and  BIDA, MN. Metastatic mesenchymal chondrosarcoma. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.2, pp.88-91. ISSN 2309-8309.

Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is an entity first described in 1959 by Lichtenstein and Bernstein.1 It is rare and comprises approximately 1% of all chondrosarcomas, with a peak incidence in the second and third decade of life.3 There is a comparable male-to-female sex ratio with two-thirds of cases arising from bone and a third from the soft tissues mainly in central areas such as the head and neck or the axial skeleton. We present a case of this highly malignant lesion arising from skeletal muscles of the thigh having already metastasised to multiple unusual areas.
