Chondroid syringoma is a generally benign, adnexal tumor most commonly found in the head and neck. It is typically diagnosed retrospectively from histopathology, and careful evaluation must differentiate it from tumors of salivary gland origin. It presents as a slowly growing, subcutaneous or intradermal nodule. Treatment consists of wide local excision with a margin of normal tissue. We report a case involving a 51-year-old man with a chondroid syringoma arising from the scalp. Clinical features, histopathology, and treatment are discussed.
