Large chondrosarcoma of skull base: an unusual intracranial tumor in a young male

Serhat Avcu1, Arzu Turan1, Özkan Ünal1, Aydın Bora1

A 25-year-old male presented with headache. He was noted to be neurologically intact on physical examination. He had normal laboratory findings. CT and MR imaging showed a large right temporal mass. Radiological diagnosis was cartilaginous tumor arising from the skull base. The patient underwent surgery at another hospital. The histopathologic features were supporting the radiologic diagnosis being evaluated as mixoid type chondrosarcoma. Although intracranial cartillaginous tumors are rare, the diagnosis can be possible with careful radiological analysis.
