Abstract

Background: Extraskel¬etal Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma (EMCS) is an extremely rare malignant tumor arising from soft tissues. It commonly occurs in the lower limbs, orbital cavity, and the central nervous system. Moreover, it is extremely rare for it to develop from a retroperitoneal location. In fact, there is no case about primary retroperitoneal ESMC involving the colon having been reported before. Case Description: In the current study, we present a case about retroperitoneal extraskel¬etal mesenchymal chondrosarcoma involving the colon in a 51 year old male patient, and discuss the major features of EMCS and make a review of the current knowledge about the rare tumor. Conclusion: Primary retroperitoneal extraskeletal mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is a very aggressive kind of chondrosarcomas, surgery is the primary treatment, which should be followed by adjuvant treatment, including chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
