ABSTRACT
During a ten year period, only three cases of extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma were seen at Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, South India. All were adults; the youngest patient was twenty-six years old and the oldest was seventy five years old. The tumours arose in the soft tissues of the extremities Our findings indicated that tumour size, site and morphology had no bearing on prognosis. With surgery radiotherapy and chemotherapy, two patients survived for four years and nine months respectively and one patient is still on follow up, five months after treatment.
