An unusual cutaneous metastasis of a chondrosarcoma.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pathology, Brigham and Womens Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.


We report a case of cutaneous metastases from a scapular chondrosarcoma in a 85-year-old man. The metastatic skin lesion was noted nine years after resection of the primary tumor. Metastases to lung and soft tissues had occurred four years earlier. The patient also had a history of malignant melanoma. Although this case illustrates an unusual pattern of metastases, we conclude that the appearance of cutaneous lesions in a patient with a prior history of chondrosarcoma should alert the clinician to the possibility of a metastatic chondrosarcoma.
