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: For the left buccal defect, reconstruction of the left buccal area was done with abdominus cutaneous flap one year after tumor resection (Figure 5). Only soft tissue was reconstructed because of no complaint of mastication.
