Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is an extremely rare, often aggressive form of cancer. It is a variant type of conventional chondrosarcoma. Conventional chondrosarcoma is a form of bone cancer that arises from cartilage cells. Cartilage is the specialized tissue that serves as a buffer or cushion at joints. Most of the skeleton of an embryo consists of cartilage, which is slowly converted into bone.
Approximately two-thirds of cases of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma affect the bones, especially the spine, ribs or jaws. The remaining cases occur in areas of the body other than bone (extra-skeletal). Unlike conventional chondrosarcomas, mesenchymal chondrosarcomas occur with greater frequency in young adults.
This form of cancer often spreads (metastasizes) to other areas of the body and can cause life-threatening complications.
