Chondrosarcomas are uncommon malignant mesenchymal neoplasms that are rare in the head and neck region. They affect mainly the maxilla, while relatively few arise from the mandible, nasal cavity, larynx, skull and cervical vertebrae. Radical surgical resection with a wide margin of normal tissue is the treatment of choice, while radiotherapy and chemotherapy are reserved as adjunctive therapies for tumours where enbloc resection is not feasible.
