Abstract
Background: Chondrosarcoma is the third most common malignant tumor of the bone and most commonly occurs between 30 and 60 years. Primary tumors form directly in bone and soft tissues, whereas secondary tumors develop on existing benign cartilage-containing tissue.
Case Presentation: In this case report, we presented a rare case of cervical chondrosarcoma in a patient who admitted to the hospital with a swelling in the neck. There was the history of Multiple Hereditary Exocytosis in the male patient aged 33 years and in his family. On X-ray, MRI and CT scans, there was an expansive mass appearance with dimensions of about 14x6x7.5 cm in the right cervical region. The tumor did not expand toward the spinal canal. The needle biopsy revealed that the patient had a chondrosarcoma, thus extensive resection was performed. Malign tumors of the cervical spine have a good prognosis if en bloc resection is possible.

Key words: Chondrosarcoma, Cervical Vertebrae, Cervical spine, Bone tumor
