A rare case of extracranial chondroma originating from the skull base is reported. The patient was a 66-year-old woman who complained of hearing loss and a foreign-body sensation in the throat. Computed tomography and operative findings revealed a tumor occupying the skull base, parapharyngeal space and nasopharynx. The tumor was removed via the external cervical approach. A survey of the literature revealed only three previous case reports.
