Chondrosarcoma of the nasal septum is a rarely encountered malignancy. When it does occur, early diagnosis is difficult because patients generally present with common, nonspecific sinonasal complaints. We describe a case of chondrosarcoma of the nasal septum in a 38-year-old Hispanic man. The lesion was discovered on computed tomography during a workup for symptoms of chronic sinus disease. The tumor was removed in its entirety and identified as a low-grade lesion that required no further treatment. The patient remained disease-free 4 years postoperatively. We review the diagnosis of this neoplasm and its treatment and follow-up.
