Abstract <p>We conducted a clinicopathological analysis of chondrosarcomas in 17 patients treated in our institute. The 5- and 10-year overall survival rates of the patients were 72.3% and 61.9%, respectively. The significant prognostic factors were size and histologic grade of the tumor. Sex, age, location of the primary tumor, or the presence of a preceding exostosis did not affect the treatment results significantly. Chondrosarcomas of histologic grades I and II did not metastasize, while all grade III and dedifferentiated chondrosarcomas metastasized to the lung. The local recurrence rate depended on the surgical margin. Wide excision with an adequate surgical margin is important to achieve local control of the chondrosarcoma.</p>
