Chondrosarcomas are uncommon tumors which originates in the head and neck and accounts for approximately 10 to 15% of all cases. Most chondrosarcomas exhibit an indolent growth pattern. Nasoseptal tumors may mimic common sinonasal conditions, making early diagnosis difficult. We report a case of nasoseptal metastatic chondrosarcoma which was atypical, characterized by an aggressive growth pattern and widely disseminated.
