Chondrosarcoma is a malignant tumour characterized by the formation of cartilage by the tumor cells. Lesions of the jaw account for 1% of all chondrosarcomas reported. Most commonly, chondrosarcomas occur in the anterior portion of maxilla. However an unusual case of chondrosarcoma, which occurred in the posterior region of the maxilla, was encountered. Biopsy was taken from multiple sites of the tumour tissue and the histopathologic diagnosis was confirmed as chondrosarcoma.
