Abstract

A 34-year-old man presented with a large chondrosarcoma of the chest invading six ribs and the vertebral bodies of five adjacent thoracic vertebrae. En bloc resection of the tumor with six ribs, the anterior part of five vertebral bodies, and the thoracic aorta was performed through a thoracotomy and a paravertebral incision.
