Soft-tissue chondromas are characterized by benign clinical behaviour.
Chondroma is a benign tumour of mesenchymal origin and slow growth that is composed of cartilage and is rarely located in soft tissues, being more commonly described in the fingers, limbs, and head or neck [1].
The patient's right lower quadrant abdominal pain resolved following resection of the bladder chondroma, suggesting it may have been related to the tumour, as reported in an earlier case.
On CT, chondromas are well circumscribed, extra-axial lesions that can be iso- or hypodense to brain.
In this case study, the cartilaginous masses on the bony EAC were appropriately diagnosed as CC and not chondromas. Preoperative examination, which included palpation and CT imaging, and intraoperative findings were useful in obtaining a proper pathological diagnosis for these lesions.
Considering the radiologic and histopathologic features, the location and the age of the patient, this lesion was most consistent with the diagnosis of a juxtacortical chondroma (periosteal chondroma).
Extraskeletal chondromas occur as multiple nodules of synovial chondromatosis within a joint, as a solitary lesion within or adjacent to joint, or as an isolated cartilagenous lesion in the soft tissues, mostly of the hands and feet.
