Isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH)1 and IDH2 mutations characterize cartilaginous tumors such as enchondromas and chondrosarcomas, but are absent in CBT.
Grade 1 chondrosarcomas consist of profuse hyaline cartilage matrix surrounding a little cellular mass and metastasize infrequently (1).
Similar to enchondroma it is a lesion arising in medullary cavity with irregular matrix calcification, but chondrosarcomas have a more aggressive appearance with bone destruction, cortical erosion, periosteal reaction and rarely a soft tissue mass.
Chondrosarcoma of the spine represents 4-10% of all chondrosarcomas and 12% of all malignant tumors of the spine [15]; the frequency of degeneration is estimated at about 1% in solitary spinal osteochondromas [16].
Due to this increased cellularity and the similarity between enchondromas and malignant chondrosarcomas, distinction between them can be difficult based on histopathology alone.

Chondrosarcomas commonly arise from any structure derived from cartilaginous precursors.
They address decision making, the safety and efficacy of surgery, interventional options, radiation therapy for primary bone tumors, medical oncology principles, spina osteoid osteomas and osteoblastomas, aneurysmal bone cysts and giant cell tumors, choromas, chondrosarcomas, osteogenic sarcomas and Ewing's sarcomas, margins in tumor resection, determining the right approach, spinopelvic reconstruction/fixation and fusion, structural graft selection, wound closure, and complications and their avoidance.
Chondrosarcomas cause injury by compressing and invading critical structures within the skull base.
Juxtacortical chondrosarcomas lack myxoid component and show bone involvement radiologically.
