      Abstract

      MR imaging of a dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma of the humerus is presented and correlated with gross and microscopic histology from the surgical specimen. The classification of chondrosarcoma and specific MR signal characteristics that suggest dedifferentiation are discussed.
