Chondroid syringoma is a rare tumor arising from the major and minor salivary glands. The incidence of chondroid syringoma is reported to be <0.01% among the primary skin tumors. Eighty percent of the chondroid syringomas are seen in older patients , commonly on head and neck region and mostly on the cheek and nose. The authors report a case discussing the surgical management of a chondroid syringoma and pointing out the importance of including this tumor in the differential diagnosis of small subcutaneous nodules in the head and neck region, in middle-age male patients.
