1. Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma of the orbit.
Match Strength: 9.190
PURPOSE: To describe a patient with mesenchymal chondrosarcoma of the orbit, review clinical and imaging findings, and refine the differential diagnosis from other tumors of the orbit. METHODS: Interventional case report and literature review. RESULTS: A 21-year-old woman with a 6-month history of progressive proptosis presented with left-sided visual loss of recent onset. CT revealed a clearly outlined heterogeneous mass with calcified foci, whereas MRI showed an isointense signal to gray matter on T1- and T2-weighted images. The patient was diagnosed with mesenchymal chondrosarcoma of the ... Read More »

2. Clinicopathologic features of two rare cases of mesenchymal metastatic tumors in the pancreas: review of the literature.
Match Strength: 6.962
OBJECTIVES: A clinicopathologic presentation of 2 unusual cases of metastatic mesenchymal neoplasms in the pancreas. METHODS: The first case concerns a 26-year-old man with a history of intracranial mesenchymal chondrosarcoma (since the age of 17), 2 left lung operations, and 3 right thigh operations. Distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy was performed because of suspicious mass in the pancreas. The second case concerns a 66-year-old woman with a history of uterus leiomyosarcoma (10 years ago) with left axillary and right femoral metastases. She underwent distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy ... Read More »

3. Chondrosarcoma of the skull base: long-term follow-up.
Match Strength: 6.318
OBJECTIVE: Chondrosarcoma of the skull base is an uncommon neoplasm comprising 0.15% of all intracranial tumors and 6% of skull base neoplasms. The outcome of treatment is difficult to assess because the slow growth rate means that there is a long interval before detecting the recurrence. We describe the use of lateral skull base techniques for these lesions and examine the long-term outcomes. The pathological features, radiological findings, and radiotherapy options are also discussed. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case review with current follow-up where possible. SETTING: Tertiary referral ... Read More »
