Mehtap Dalkılıç Çalış, Varol Çalış, Öznur Aksakal, Yusuf Başer, Murat Taşkın, Oktay İncekara

The chondrosarcoma, the most malignant cartilage tumor, represents 0.15% of all cranial space occupying lesions. It is assumed that chondrosarcomas originate from remnants of embryonal cartilage or from metaplasia of meningeal fibroblasts. In general, an optimal tumor removal in one operation was advocated. Radiotherapy is another treatment for these tumors in the direct vicinity of essential structures. In this article we report two cases with the diagnosis of cranial chondrosarcoma, one of whom is a 34-year-old male, and the other is 25-year-old female.

Keywords: Cranial chondrosarcoma, surgery, radiotherapy.
