Pelvic chondrosarcomas are malignant cartilaginous tumours. They can result in a clinical presentation that is similar to mechanical back pain. Due to their slow growth, chondrosarcomas tend to cause symptoms over a prolonged period of time, and the diagnosis might be delayed. It is important to recognize the clinical indicators of serious disease and obtain the necessary tests to rule out such conditions. In this report, we present two cases of pelvic chondrosarcomas mistaken for mechanical back pain.
