ABSTRACT
Chondroblastoma is an uncommon benign chondroid neoplasm that occurs predominantly at the epiphysis of the long bones in the skeletally immature. Rarely chondroblastoma may occur in the skull. We report a case of a 36-year-old man with chondroblastoma arising from the right temporal bone. Radical excision of the tumor using the infratemporal fossa approach was performed and the involved dura was resected. There was no evidence of tumor recurrence 4 years after surgery. On the basis of this case and a review of the literatures, we recommend complete surgical excision including adjacent dura mater as the primary treatment for chondroblastoma of the temporal bone invading the dura mater.
Key Words: Chondroblastoma; Temporal bone; Neoplasm
