Soft-tissue chondroma is an infrequent, benign, cartilaginous tumour that is uncommon in the head and neck region. Single-location chondromas rarely evolve into malignant neoplasms. Chondromas are composed of hyaline cartilage with focal calcification. There have been a few reports published of cases of soft-tissue chondroma of the neck and parapharyngeal space. Here is described a new location of this tumour in the masticatory space. © 2006 International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Abstract

Soft-tissue chondroma is an infrequent, benign, cartilaginous tumour that is uncommon in the head and neck region. Single-location chondromas rarely evolve into malignant neoplasms. Chondromas are composed of hyaline cartilage with focal calcification. There have been a few reports published of cases of soft-tissue chondroma of the neck and parapharyngeal space. Here is described a new location of this tumour in the masticatory space.
