Chondrosarcomas usually invite extensive surgical resection. These are malignant tumors of cartilaginous origin and their involvement in the maxillofacial region is rare. Juxtacortical chondrosarcoma, a distinct malignant cartilage-forming tumor arising from the external surface of a bone, is extremely rare in the mandible. Here, one such case with a relatively good prognosis is presented where marginal resection as a surgical option yielded good result.
