Abstract:   (5314 Views)
Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma(MC) was first described in 1959. MC is a rare tumor arising in bone or soft tissue which is composed of well differentiated cartilage with in a proliferation of primitive mesenchymal cell. MC occurs most often in the second and third decades of life. The prognosis is poor, local recurrence and metastases are frequent. A 32 year old, white female consulted a physician for abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Computed tomographic(CT) scan of the abdomen disclosed a huge retroperitoneal mass with large area of necrosis located at the left side. With probable diagnosis of kidney tumor, left nephrectomy and splenectomy was performed for the patient. While surgery a retroperitoneal mass occupying the left side with adhesion to the adjacent viscera was detected and removed. Histologic examination revealed mesenchymal chondrosarcoma.
