Chondroblastomas typically arise in the bony epiphysis, with a predilection for the distal femur, proximal tibia, or proximal humerus. Chondroblastomas that arise in the skull and facial bones are quite rare, and lesions in the mandibular condyle are even rarer. This case brings the total reported chondroblastoma of the mandibular condyle to nine at the date of submission of this article for publication. We describe the clinical presentation, radiographic features, differential diagnosis, and treatment for this unusual tumor.

Abstract

Chondroblastomas typically arise in the bony epiphysis, with a predilection for the distal femur, proximal tibia, or proximal humerus. Chondroblastomas that arise in the skull and facial bones are quite rare, and lesions in the mandibular condyle are even rarer. This case brings the total reported chondroblastoma of the mandibular condyle to nine at the date of submission of this article for publication. We describe the clinical presentation, radiographic features, differential diagnosis, and treatment for this unusual tumor. The relevant literature on the subject is reviewed, and recommendations for appropriate diagnostic investigation applicable for tumors in this region is presented.
