PURPOSE: Chondromas are benign tumors composed of mature hyaline cartilage. These tumors are quite common in the bones of the hands and feet but extremely rare in jaw bones, and few such cases are reported in the literature. The aim of the present study was to carry out a literature review and present a clinical case of a patient with a chondroma in the right mandibular condyle treated with excision of the tumor.
CONCLUSIONS: The importance of early diagnosis and treatment in order to impede or minimize any lasting effects is discussed.
