Summary

Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma is a rare soft tissue neoplasm of chondroblastic origin. The tumors are most commonly found in middle-aged and elderly individuals, are more common among men, and are often detected as deep-seated lesions in the extremities. Despite their relatively low-grade malignancy, recurrence and metastasis may appear many years after the initial diagnosis. Histologic tissue section examination reveals a mixture of cellular and myxoid stromal components (Panagopoulos et al., 2002). [from OMIM]
