Abstract: Chondroid syringoma is a myxoid tumor of the skin, which has a reported incidence of <0.01% among primary skin tumors. The majority of these tumors occur in the head and neck regions of adult males. The correct diagnosis is made by histopathologic examination. We present the first instance of chondroid syringoma in a child, which, to the best of our knowledge, has not been reported previously in the English language literature.
