Chondroblastoma is a highly destructive tumor, derived from immature cartilage cells, typically occurring in epiphyses of the long bones of adolescents and young adults. Those occurring in the temporal bone and TMJ area are likely to mimic TMJ symptoms. This report describes a unique case in which a chondroblastoma resulted in extensive destruction of the temporal bone, temporomandibular joint, mandibular condyle, and cranial base, including gross intracranial and extracranial involvement. With appropriate surgical management, the outcome for patients with chondroblastoma of the temporomandibular region is quite favorable. This case brings the total reported chondroblastomas to 59 in the temporal bone and eight in the mandibular condyle as of the date of submission of this article for publication.
