Abstract

Chondromas rarely occur in the nasal area and are usually found in the metaphyseal area of the
phalanges and metacarpals of the hands, as well as the pelvis, sternum and scapula. The authors
present an unusual case of dysphagia induced by histologically confirmed chondroma arising from
the nasal septum. Treatment is to completely remove the mass with adequate margins of normal
tissues to prevent recurrence and malignancy. Intranasal endoscopic removal of tumor with an
adequate margin of normal tissue. After one year of treatment, there was no evidence of recurrence.
We present a case of nasal septal chondroma in 18 year male.
