An 18-year-old male patient was diagnosed pelvic chondrosarcoma histopathologically. Hip joint involvement was detected. No metastasis or neurovascular invasion was seen. Type I+II pelvic resection and hip reconstruction were planned with pedestal cup (LUMiC®) and proximal femur tumor prosthesis. Surgery was performed in lateral decubitus position with extensive triradiate incision. Pelvic wide resection was performed. At the second year of follow-up, implant failure was detected and patient was revised with same pedestal cup. Axial stability was supported by a L5 screw and connector from L5 vertebrae to LUMiC® prosthesis. Except the implant failure, no oncological complication or infection was observed during the final 36th month follow-up.
