slide 20 of 91


Comments:
Chondroblastic osteosarcoma involving proximal tibia in a 15 year old male. Bluish-white areas of cartilaginous differentiation are scattered throughout the tumor. Microscopically, these tumors show malignant-appearing chondrocytes in lacunae, crowded areas of spindle cells at the periphery of the lobules, and islands of feathery osteoid matrix within the cartilaginous areas. About 20% of osteosarcomas are classified as chondroblastic. Courtesy of : Dr. Chandra Krishnan. Used with permission.
