A bibliographic review and an updating of the control of patients with chondrosarcoma were made. Important aspects such as classification, sex, localization, clinical picture, imaging with emphasis in Morphey's gammagraphic studies, pathological anatomy, differential diagnosis, surgical treatment and complications, were analyzed. In the surgical treatment, reference mainly was made to the utilization of the different techniques based on their histological and radiological behaviour. The most important complications of this tumor, which are recurrence and metastasis, were exposed, and some related factors were also explained.
