Introduction: Chondroid Syringoma of nose is a rare benign mixed tumour of head and neck region originating from the sweat glands having low incidence of 0.01 to 0.098%. It presents as slow growing, painless subcutaneous, non ulcerating mass or nodule.

Objectives: To describe the rare case of chondroid syringoma of the nose presented in our hospital after traumatic injury of nose. To elaborate clinical, radiological and histological features of chondroid syringoma

Methods: Case presentation of the patient with a mass at left ala & supra tip area of nose with history of trauma was studied. History & clinical examination, imaging studies and histopathology of specimen were reviewed. Similar literatures of the cases were reviewed.

Results: A 24 years male patient with history of slow growing mass at left ala and supra tip area of nose for 8 years presented in hospital after physical assault with bleeding from the nose and lacerated wound at nose. On examination lacerated wound with firm, lobulated whitish mass of size 4cm x 3cm at left ala of nose. CT scan of Nose and Paranasal Sinus (PNS) showed high density lesion without any bone erosion and other deformity. Wide local excision of mass was done under general anesthesia with primary closure of the wound. Histopathological examination of specimen revealed chondroid syringoma. No complications and recurrence occurred during the follow up period.

Conclusion: Chondroid Syringoma of the nose presents as slow growing mass which usually does not bother the patient to seek the medical attention. Wide local excision with clear margins is required to avoid any recurrence.
