Chondroid syringoma is a cutaneous sweat gland tumor. Despite its relative rarity, a benign and malignant variant have been described. We present a case report of chondroid syringoma of the foot in a healthy patient. Definitive diagnosis required histopathologic examination, while treatment included wide resection. Surgeons who are presented with a painless, solid nodule in the lower extremities should be cognizant of this neoplasm.

Levels of evidence: Therapeutic, Level IV: Case report.

Keywords: benign; chondroid syringoma; foot and ankle; malignant; soft tissue mass.
