Chondrosarcoma of the maxilla mimicking pulp disease on initial presentation
Nonaka, Cassiano Francisco Weege / de Aquino, Ana Rafaela Luz / de Almeida, Isabel Cristina Pinheiro / de Souza, Lélia Batista / Pinto, Leao Pereira
Chondrosarcomas are malignant mesenchymal tumors characterized by the differentiation of pure hyaline cartilage, and they are relatively uncommon in jawbones. Chondrosarcoma of the jaws usually presents as a painless mass or swelling associated with loosening of the associated teeth. This report describes an unusual case of chondrosarcoma that mimicked pulp disease on initial presentation in the maxilla of a 22-yearold man. The relevant literature is reviewed regarding clinicopathologic features and therapeutic management of chondrosarcomas.
