Chondrosarcomas (CS) are slow-growing, malignant mesenchymal tumors characterized by the formation of cartilage by the tumor cells. Benign cartilage-producing tumors within the jaws are extremely uncommon, but most ultimately prove to represent low-grade CS. In the maxillofacial region, the maxilla is more commonly affected than the mandible, it comprises less than 2% of all jaw tumors. Clinically, the tumor presents as a swelling that may be painful and cause loosening of the involved teeth, with widening of the periodontal ligament space. The treatment of such lesions is wide surgical excision with regular follow up. The present report discusses the case of a 55-year-old female patient with massive multiple recurring dedifferentiated CS of mandible.
