Chondroid syringomas have cartilaginous islands within fibromyxoid stroma.
Pattern 6: Dermal Nodule With Variable Mixture of Cords/Chains/Tubules and Chondromyxoid Stroma Mixed Tumor (Chondroid Syringoma)
Benign chondroid neoplasms like enchondroma and osteochondromas are common bone tumours affecting hands and feet.
Chondroid tumors have a fluid-rich matrix, so there is no appreciated difference between the ADC measurements in benign and malignant lesions (Hayashida et al., 2006) (14).
Primary variants of lipoma can be listed as angiolipoma, myolipoma, fibrolipoma, angiomyolipoma, myelolipoma, chondroid lipoma, chondrolipoma, fusiform cell, and pleomorphic lipoma.
(2) In chondroblastic osteosarcomas, the chondroid component of the tumor may develop matrix visible on imaging, resulting in ring and arc calcifications.
Small amounts of chondroid elements and epithelial components were noted in the main tumor [Figure 3]a and [Figure 3]b.
Stromal malignant sarcomatous component may be either homologous (composed of tissues normally found in the uterus) or heterologous (containing tissues not normally found in the uterus, most commonly malignant cartilage or skeletal muscle).9 The poor prognostic sign is marked pleomorphism and atypia in sarcomatous element with deep myometrial invasion.3 We excluded the possibility of adenosarcoma by performing extensive sampling of the uterus and submitting the chondroid areas completely for microscopic examination.
Lipomas are classified into various subtypes according to histopathological features, including fibrolipoma, myxolipoma, chondroid lipoma, and myolipoma.
Besides, the adnexa of the skin also give rise to appendage tumours like eccrine spiradenoma and chondroid syringoma.
