Orbito-cranial mesenchymal chondrosarcoma in a young female: A rare case report


Shyam Sharma, Somnath Roy, Imraan Khan, Suparna Pal, Anup Majumdar
Abstract

Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma (MCS) of the head and neck is highly aggressive malignant small round cell neoplasm with cartilaginous differentiation, often with a pericytomatous vascular pattern. It represents approximately 0.1% of all head and neck neoplasms. Chondrosarcoma of orbit is extremely rare. We report a case of orbito-cranial MCS in a 24-year-old female who presented with exophthalmos. Imaging revealed a large heterogenous lesion arising from right orbit with intracranial extension. Patient underwent right fronto-temporal craniotomy with tumor decompression from intracranial part and right orbit. Histopathologic examination and immunohistochemistry was suggestive of MCS. Postoperative residual disease was treated with chemotherapy showing partial response.
