Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is a rare malignant tumor that comprises about 3-10% of all sarcomas. Reports of cytogenetic studies of mesenchymal chondrosarcoma are limited and no consistent cytogenetic abnormality has surfaced. Some mesenchymal chondrosarcomas have a t(11;22) translocation suggesting a relationship with the PNET/Ewing tumor family. We report what to our knowledge is the first case of trisomy 8 as the sole cytogenetic abnormality in a mesenchymal chondrosarcoma.
