Abstract

Rare cases of intracranial chondromas have been documented in the literature, often after complete surgical excision. We describe a case of giant intracranial tumor at post-mortem examination of a man who had survived 48 years after a partial debulking. Histological examination revealed a chondroid tumor with no significant pleomorphism and central cystic degeneration. Our case illustrates the benignity of the intracranial chondroma and to our knowledge, is one of the longest surviving and largest cases found after incomplete removal.
