Chondrosarcoma is a malignant cartilaginous tumor that rarely occurs in the maxillofacial bones. A 44-year-old woman complained about swelling and mild pain during mastication in the right parasymphysis region. Clinical and radiographic examinations revealed characteristics of osteosarcoma. A microscopic examination revealed an abundant proliferation of malignant neoplastic cartilage cells of varying sizes arranged as immature tissue and the absence of an osteoid matrix. This article presents a case of chondrosarcoma of the jaw and discusses the differences between osteosarcoma and chondrosarcoma.
