  • Category Type: Chondroid-forming
  • Category Sub Type: Malignant
  • Location: Distal femur
  • Age: 54
  • Sex: F
  • Treatment: Excisional arthrodesis

  • Images relating to this case: 3673 , 3674 , 3675 , 3676 , 3677 , 3678, 3679 .

Low power photomicrograph of a specimen taken from within the femoral condyle shows the permeative infiltration of the low-grade chondrosarcoma into the cancellous pattern. This would never be seen with an enchondroma and therefore is quite diagnostic of a low-grade chondrosarcoma.
