Intracranial chondromas are extremely rare tumors, but when present, are generally related to the synchondrosis of the base, and they have several distinct features. They are slow growing benign tumors, and plain roentgenogram frequently reveals lytic lesion and stippled calcification at base of the skull. They are radioresistant, and surgical removal is treatment of choice. We report the rare case of chondroma arisen from base of the skull which diagnosed by brain CT and confirmed by operation.
Key Words: Chondroma; Synchondrosis; Calcification; Surgical removal
