Chondrosarcoma is a rare primary malignant neoplasm of the head, neck, oral and maxillofacial regions. The clinicopathological and radiographic findings are usually characteristic; however, not decisive. The neoplasm is usually treated by wide surgical resection because it is traditionally radioresistant. However, radiotherapy is generally advised for high-grade lesions, and chemotherapy has a palliative role. The treatment and management are primarily guided by the histological grades of the neoplasm. Prognosis of jaw lesions is poor as compared to the lesions affecting the long bones of the body, and the cause of death is usually by direct extension in the base of the skull or due to distant metastasis to lungs and other bones. A clinical case of chondrosarcoma, involving the right half of mandible of a 36 year old male patient is discussed herewith, encompassing the entire gamut of clinicopathological, radiological and treatment modalities rendered.
