Chondroid Syringoma: Two unusual presentations.

Sunita Singh; Veena Gupta; Sonia Hasija; Renuka Verma; Jyoti Sharma; Megha Ralli.

Chondroid syringoma is an uncommon, benign and asymptomatic tumor of sweat glands. It represents cutaneous counterpart of pleomorphic adenoma of salivary glands. It is more commonly seen in head and neck region and rarely in distal extremities. We report two cases of chondroid syringoma, one located over the right thigh in a 16 yrs old male and another presenting as slow growing, non ulcerated subcutaneous or intracutaneous nodule of hand. The unusual localization of chondroid syringoma made an accurate preoperative diagnosis difficult and diagnosis was achieved only by microscopy in both the cases. For such a lesion, excision biopsy, without destroying aesthetic and functional structure is preferred diagnostic as well as therapeutic approach. Although benign, malignant forms of chondroid syringoma are also reported and hence it is important to be aware of this entity to avoid misdiagnosis on histopathological examination.

Key words: chondroid syringoma;pleomorphic adenoma;skin tumor
