Chondrosarcoma of the spine: a rare case with unusual presentation (Journal article)

Panelos, J./ Voulgaris, S./ Michos, E./ Doukas, M./ Charalabopoulos, K./ Batistatou, A.


Chondrosarcoma is the third most common primary malignancy of bone, affecting primarily the pelvic and shoulder girdles and being extremely rare in the spine. Herein, we present a case of a 65-year-old woman with a rare chondrosarcoma of the spine, who presented with clinical symptoms from the lung metastasis. The neoplasm was grade II and exhibited overexpression of the p53 tumor suppressor protein. The latter has been associated with a high propensity for distant metastases.
