Chondroblastoma of the temporal bone. Case report and literature review

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. 1992 Sep;101(9):763-9. doi: 10.1177/000348949210100909.

Abstract

Chondroblastoma is a rare tumor of bone that represents approximately 1% of all primary bone tumors. In the temporal bone, only 33 have been reported. We present a case of chondroblastoma of the temporal bone, followed by a literature review and analysis of reported cases. We conclude that the best chance for a prolonged disease-free interval is total excision using a combined otolaryngologic and neurosurgical approach.
