Dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma: an aggressive variant of chondrosarcoma

Dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma: an aggressive variant of chondrosarcoma

Asian Cardiovascular and Thoracic Annals 23(2): 221-223

Dedifferentiated chondrosarcomas are a rare and aggressive subtype of chondrosarcoma with a bimorphic pattern on histopathology. Rib is a rare site of dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma. Diagnosis of this subtype preoperatively can be challenging. Treatment options for dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma are limited because they are chemoresistant, and therefore adequate surgery forms the main stay of treatment. We present our experience with a dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma of the rib, and discuss the management of this rare entity.
