We report a case of a lumbar spinal osteochondroma that transformed into a large chondrosarcoma in a 39-year-old male who presented with an abdominal mass and back pain. This mass was also associated with a fracture of the stalk, which on cross-sectional imaging mimicked a mass of retroperitoneal origin. The diagnosis of chondrosarcoma transforming from a lumbar osteochondroma became apparent when comparison was made with previous studies.
