Abstract

Chondrosarcoma is the second most commonly encountered primary malignancy of bone, accounting for as much as 20% of such tumors. It most frequently involves the large limb bones (femur, tibia, and humerus), the scapula, and the ribs. Metastases are relatively rare and tend to occur late in the course of the disease. The lungs are the most common site of metastases. Metastatic chondrosarcoma to the skin is extremely rare, with only 10 cases described in the English literature. We herein report a case of disseminated cutaneous metastases from chondrosarcoma, presented as multiple papules and nodules on the trunk, scalp, and upper extremities.
