ABSTRACT
Mesenchymal chondrosarcomas (MCs) are rare malignant neoplasms that can arise from both soft and hard tissues. They are distinct tumors arising in unicentric or multicentric locations. They reveal unusual clinical behavior, characteristic histopathological features, and poor prognosis with late recurrences. Here is a report of a rare case of MC that was arising in a 23-year-old female patient who was previously diagnosed for odontogenic myxoma. The importance of thorough evaluation and follow-up of the patient is emphasized.
