|Title:||Head and neck chondrosarcoma: Analysis of 16 cases|
|Abstract:||Objective: Head and neck chondrosarcomas are rare, accounting for less than 12% of all chondrosarcomas. Few studies with larger series approach the clinicopathological characteristics of these tumours. The aim of this study was describe clinical findings, management and outcome of 16 cases of head and neck chondrosarcoma from a single institution. Study design: The files of the Cancer Hospital A. C. Camargo were reviewed, and data from patients with head and neck chondrosarcoma were collected. Results: Mean age was 36 years, with slight male predilection. The most common site affected was maxilla (43%). Surgery was the main modality treatment performed in 10 patients. Overall 5-year survival rate was 56.4%. Although it was not statistically significant, the most important factor affecting overall survival was tumour size. Conclusion: Early diagnosis and adequate surgical resection are important to get better survival rates. (C) 2009 The British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
