(a) Low-power (low 20×) photomicrograph of chondroid syringoma arising in the deep dermis with well-circumscribed appearance. (b) Medium (40×) and (c) high-power (100×) views show abundant chondromyxoid stroma enveloping islands and anastomosing cords of bland epithelial cells.

A 51-year-old man presented with a 1-year history of an enlarging mass on his right parietal scalp associated with symptoms of pain and tightness. The lesion was yellow and solid, with defined borders. There was no necrosis or ulceration. Excisional biopsy was performed and the surgical pathology report confirmed the diagnosis of chondroid syringoma.
