Chondroid syringoma is also known as mixed tumour of the skin. It is a rare, biphasic cutaneous neoplasm similar to pleomorphic adenoma of salivary glands. Because of its rarity, many cases are misdiagnosed in the initial stages as cysts or other cutaneous adnexal neoplasms and are often identified only after being sent for histopathological examination.Although it usually presents in middle and older aged patients, we are presenting three younger patients with Chondroid syringoma, located over the back, nose and cheek, respectively.
