Chondroid syringoma is a rare appendagel skin tumor. Due to its uncharacteristic presentation, it is rarely diagnosed clinically. Here we present one such case in a 50-year-old lady. She presented with a hard mobile lesion over her nose which was excised. The histologic picture is characterized by a combination of epithelial and myoepithelial structures within a chondromyxoid and fibrous stroma. For these tumors, excision is the treatment of choice.
