Chondrosarcoma is a rare and potentially lethal neoplasm and even rarer in the head-and-neck area. It is a very uncommon clinical condition at the sinonasal tract. The determination of this neoplasm depends on the histopathological consideration indicating harmful chondroid tissue multiplication. The prognostic elements for chondrosarcomas are grading of tumor and histological picture of tumor edges. The primary treatment of this tumor is radical surgery with wide safe margin. The other adjuvant treatments such as radiation and/or chemotherapy remain uncertain. The biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of myxoid chondrosarcoma. Here, we present a rare case of chondrosarcoma of a 48-year-old man presented with mass at the nasofacial region.
