Chondrosarcomas are rare lesions within the head and neck. They are most common in the 4th to 5th decade of life and usually present as a painless swelling. The purpose of this paper is to present a case and review the literature with regard to the radiographic appearance. Although the radiographic appearance is variable, there are some features that are common to most cases, the most important feature being that of an ill-defined radiolucent lesion with scattered radio-opacities. Although these features are seen in other malignant diseases, these features should alert the clinician to the possibility of a chondrosarcoma. Clinical Relevance: Chondrosarcomas of the jaw are rare but important malignant lesions that require prompt diagnosis and treatment for improved outcomes.
