Abstract

Chondrosarcoma is an extremely rare cause of pelvic mass mimicking ovarian carcinoma. Imaging techniques, even CT and MRI, failed to define the exact origin of the tumor. These findings as well as the elevated CA-125 level naturally resulted in a preoperative diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma. Surgical removal is the most important treatment of choice for chondrosarcoma. We experienced a case of extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma of pelvic cavity in a 45-year-old patient, who presented with abdominal distension and lower abdominal palpable mass, and reported it with a brief review of literatures.
