Nasal chondroma is a rare clinical condition. Imaging and histopathological examination are combined to make the diagnosis of a nasal chondroma. Surgical excision is the treatment of chondroma. While during the course of treatment, it should be kept in mind that the condition can reoccur and occasionally transform into sarcomatous changes. Therefore, close long-term follow-up is crucial for this tumor. We describe a rare case of chondroma emerging from the nasal septum in a 60-year-old male in this paper due to the unusual occurrence of the disease.
