Dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma is defined by the presence of a low grade malignant cartilaginous component juxtaposed to a high grade malignant non-cartilaginous sarcomatous components. Only 4 cases in which the high grade component showed epithelial differentiation have been reported in the literature; three featured a squamous and the one a glandular epithelial component. Here we describe a case of dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma exhibiting epithelial "adamantinoma-like" basaloid features. The patient underwent wide resection of the proximal tibia and post-operative chemotherapy and died 8 months after the diagnosis due to lung and bone metastases.
