A chondroid syringoma or a mixed tumour of skin, is a rare, benign skin adnexal tumour of sweat gland origin, which is most commonly seen in the head and neck region of patients who are in the sixth and seventh decades. These tumours usually present as asymptomatic, slowly growing masses. We are reporting a rare case of a chondroid syringoma of Rt. ala nasi in a 50 years old female. The swelling had started 4 years back as a small nodule and it had gradually increased in size to 2x2 cms. It was located subcutaneously and it was projecting into the anterior nares. A clinical diagnosis of a benign adnexal tumour (adenoma) or a solitary neurofibroma was made and an excision was planned. Histopathology revealed features of a chondroid adenoma. We are reporting this case because of its rare and unusual site of occurrence and so far, in the available literature, no such case has been reported on tumours of alanasi.
