We report a case of an extracranial chondroma of the skull base. This tumor occupied mainly the skull base, the nasopharynx and the parapharyngeal space. Magnetic resonance imaging was effective in diagnosis and determining the extent of the lesion. Total extirpation of the lesion was performed via an external cervical approach. A survey of the available literature revealed only three similar cases treated to date.
