Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is a form of malignant chondrosarcoma.[1][2] Unlike most chondrosarcomas, mesenchymal chondrosarcoma grows rapidly, tends to spread, and occurs more often in children and young adults than in older adults.[3]

Type II collagen can help distinguish it from other tumors.[4]
