GONZALEZ GONZALEZ, José Luis. Costal Chondrosarcoma with Intraperitoneal Dissemination. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2019, vol.58, n.4, e700.  Epub 25-Mayo-2020. ISSN 0034-7493.

Chondrosarcoma is defined as a malignant tumor with pure hyaline cartilage differentiation and that may be accompanied with myxoid changes, calcification, and ossification. The objective is to show the treatment outcome for peritoneal dissemination from a rib chondrosarcoma. A review of the literature was carried out, as well as the indications and techniques corresponding to the treatment of chondrosarcoma peritoneal dissemination. The outcomes are presented in a patient diagnosed and operated on at Hermanos Ameijeiras Clinical-Surgical Hospital, between January 2014 and December 2017. Female patient, 46 years old, who, seven years earlier, had presented increased volume in the left lower rib region and undergone surgery. With the diagnosis of chondrosarcoma, a rib resection was performed the first time, and then, on two more occasions due to tumor recurrence, a polypropylene prosthesis was placed in the last intervention. Two years after the last surgery, she returned with increased volume in the lower part (thoracoabdominal region, axillary line), except for the following symptom: she exhibited an excellent general condition. Theperitoneal dissemination of chondrosarcoma is exceptional, very little reported worldwide, and with little treatment experience. A multivisceral resection and peritonectomy technique was performed with postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. There were no complications related to the procedure and a second extensive intervention was performed after two-year relapse.
