Case Study
A case report is presented which discusses an endoscopic resection in the treatment of a massive chondrosarcoma in the pterygopalatin fossa, nose, and paranasal sinuses. The patient is an 83-year-old woman. The surgical procedure which removed the tumor from the infraorbital nerve to the pterygopalatine fossa established primary intranasal clearance. Symptoms, histology, and prognosis of nasal chondrosarcoma are noted.

    Background: Chondrosarcomas are rare non-epithelial malignant tumours. Surgery is the primary treatment option for chondrosarcoma, with adjuvant therapy having a minor role. In cases of nasal chondrosarcoma, however, en bloc total removal by open approaches is often undesirable. Here we report a...
