Abstract
Chondroid choristomais a rare tumor like lesion of normal tissue in an unusual location. Oral cavity chondroid choristoma is exceedingly uncommon. This lesion is commonly covered by normal oral mucosa and can develop during a whole lifetime. We experienced a case of 57-year-old man who presented as 6-months history of asymptomatic mass on the dorsal surface of the tongue. We performed surgical excision under local anesthesia, and the pathological diagnosis was chondroid choristoma. After surgery, patient was followed up without any recurrence and discomfort. Therefore, we report this case with a review of literature.
