BACKGROUND: The incidence and prognostic factors of chondrosarcoma patients have been reported in early studies. However, the association between risk factors and the incidence or prognosis of chondrosarcoma patients with pulmonary metastasis remains unclear. Therefore, we assessed these risk factors among chondrosarcoma patients with pulmonary metastasis.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: From 1365 chondrosarcoma patients in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, we collected the information of 69 patients with pulmonary metastasis at the initial diagnosis of chondrosarcoma from 2010 to 2016. We investigated the incidence, risk factors, and prognostic factors for pulmonary metastasis patients by using multivariate logistic regression and multivariate Cox regression analyses.

RESULTS: Data from a total of 69 (6.8%) chondrosarcoma patients with pulmonary metastasis at initial diagnosis were extracted. Patients with the following characteristics were positively associated with higher risk of pulmonary metastasis: dedifferentiated subtype, high grade of malignancy, extracompartmental tumor (Enneking B), presence of regional lymph nodes, local recurrence, large tumor size (larger than 15 cm), and being married. Older patients (older than 67 years), and patients with clear cell chondrosarcoma or large tumor size (larger than 15 cm) exhibited the worse prognosis and survival (overall and cancer-specific). Resection of the primary tumor tended to be correlated with a better prognosis.

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of pulmonary metastasis in chondrosarcoma was approximately 6.8%, with poor prognosis. Identifying risk factors and their associations with the incidence and prognosis in chondrosarcoma patients with pulmonary metastasis could provide a reference for clinical surveillance and guide the design of personalized treatment plans.
