We report a case of chondroblastoma arising from the petrous temporal bone treated with gross total resection and hearing preservation. Three-year follow up shows no evidence of recurrence. Chondroblastoma in this location is exceedingly rare, and to the best of our knowledge, this is only the third reported case. Diagnosis of chondroblastoma in this location warrants referral to a surgeon experienced in approaches to the skull base for gross total resection.
