Abstract
Introduction: Chondrosarcoma is a malignant neoplasm of cartilage-forming-tissue and rarely encountered in the temporal bone. The clinical aspects and management of this rare lesion are discussed.
Case Report: We report a chondrosarcoma of the temporal bone presenting with facial nerve palsy in an 80-year-old female. A computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging showed a destructive mass located in the right mastoid air cells and extending into the venous sinus. We performed mastoidectomy and tympanotomy to determine a definitive diagnosis and to remove the temporal bone lesion.
Conclusion: Chondrosarcoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with slowly progressive osseous tumors. It is important to obtain an early diagnosis and resection before the tumor becomes extensive.

Keywords: Chondrosarcoma, Temporal bone, Facial palsy
