A case of chondrosarcoma arising in the temporomandibular joint.

Nomura T, Kobayashi T, Shingaki S, Saito C - Case Rep Otolaryngol (2015)

Bottom Line: We discuss a case of chondrosarcoma in temporomandibular joint in a 28-year-old man.Tumor was in contact with the dura, but en bloc resection was performed.After surgical resection of the tumor, face defect was reconstructed by rectus abdominis-free flap.

ABSTRACT
Chondrosarcoma is a malignant tumor originating in cartilaginous cells. And there are only few reports of the case of chondrosarcoma in temporomandibular joint. We discuss a case of chondrosarcoma in temporomandibular joint in a 28-year-old man. Tumor was in contact with the dura, but en bloc resection was performed. After surgical resection of the tumor, face defect was reconstructed by rectus abdominis-free flap. And there is no recurrence after ten years from the resection.

No MeSH data available.

Mentions: Computed tomography (CT) scan showed a mass arising from the temporomandibular joint and size was 40 mm in length, 50 mm in width, and 30 mm in height. Enhancement of tumor was low (Figure 3(a)). In superior area, infratemporal fossa was eroded and tumor invaded middle cranial fossa. The mass was seen in cranial area, but invasion of dura was not obvious (Figure 3(b)).
