Abstract

Recent refinements in assay techniques have led to detection of human chorionic gonadotropin in a wide variety of malignant tumors. Our review of the literature revealed two reports of low titers in association with osteosarcoma 1. To our knowledge, the production of a markedly elevated level of gonadotropin in serum or urine associated with a primary bone tumor has not been reported previously. The present study documents a case of chondrosarcoma associated with a significantly high level of human chorionic gonadotropin in a twenty-six-year-old white man.
