Asymptomatic flesh-colored lobular nodule on the nose


Chondroid syringoma is a rare benign tumor of the skin appendages. Chondroid syringoma is mostly manifested by a slow-growing, painless, well defined subcutaneous or intradermal nodule. A 43-year-old man presented to our clinic with the complaint of an asymptomatic nodule on the dorsum of the nose for 8 months. The lesion was totally excised. Histopathological examination was notable for epithelial islets embedded in the chondroid matrix in the dermis. The patient was diagnosed with chondroid syringoma in light of the clinical and histopathological findings.
