Chondroblastoma of temporal bone

Neuroradiology. 1986;28(4):367-70. doi: 10.1007/BF00333449.


The case of a 55-year-old female with chondroblastoma arising from the left temporal bone is presented. Although 10 cases of temporal chondroblastoma have been reported, this is the first in which plain radiography, pluridirectional tomography, computed tomography (CT) and angiography were performed. We discuss the clinical and radiological aspects of this rare tumor.
