Radiotheraphy of Chondrosarcoma of Bone - A review of 12 cases -
Charn Il Park, Won Dong Kim
Twelve patients with chondrosarcoma of bone who were treated with radiotherapy at the Seoul National University Hospital between 1979 and 1992 were reviewed. Of the 12 patients, 9 patients were classified with grade I or II chondrosarcoma and 3 patients with mesenchymal or dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma. 3 patients received radiotherapy alone and 9 patients received surgery and postoperative radiotherapy. Tumor doses ranged from 54 Gy to 70 Gy. With a median follow-up of 30 months, three patients died: two with uncontrolled local disease and one with distant metastasis. The remaining 9 patients(75%, 9/12) showed the long-term survival after radiotherapy, which suggests that radiotherapy may be contributed to improve the local control or cure rate in the management of chondrasarcoma of the bone.
