Abstract

Although pulmonary metastases are typical of chondrosarcoma, only 2 patients with intermediate grade tumours have been reported with bone metastases and without pulmonary involvement. We report one patient with an intermediate grade chondrosarcoma which metastasised to the lumbar spine following surgical resection of a locally recurrent tumour. The local recurrence and the metastases were resected and she is alive and well after 20 months.
