The peak age of presentation is in the 50's and 60's, and the to female ratio of 1.5 to 1. It is most common in the femur, humerus, ribs and on the surface of the pelvis. Patients with Ollier's disease (multiple enchondromatosis) or Maffucci's syndrome (multiple enchondromas and hemangiomas) are at much higher risk of chondrosarcoma than the normal population and often present in the third and fourth decade.
Symptoms and Presentation:
The lesion presents as a slow growing mass with mild pain.
The radiographs will show a lytic lesion which may demonstrate ring and arc formations.
Treatment for low grade chondrosarcoma may include curettage or marginal excision.
