Chondroid syringoma (CS) of the orbit is virtually a rare benign neoplasm. As far as the latest information is concerned with updated knowledge and visualizing techniques this is the rare case being reported in the existing British literature . The examining authors now bring to light a case of a man aging 60 years affected with orbital Chondroid syringoma. This cited tumor grew at a low speed within an interval of over 8 years and thus giving rise to indolor with exopthalmos of the right eye. Computed tomography revealed a well circumscribed heterogeneously enhancing solid mass lesion at supero-lateral aspect of right orbit with no bony erosion, calcification and periosteal reaction . On the eve of surgery the developed mass was definitely circumscribed, very rigid, extraconal and not invading or adhering to nearby organs. The tumor was completely removed from all sides. No recurrence was ever detected even after adopting two year’s follow up. An unusual case of a patient is being hereby reported who underwent resection of an intraorbital chondroid syringoma completely.Therefore it becomes mandatory to very well include chondroid syringoma in the differential diagnosis of intraorbital tumors. The common sites of their prevalence are the cheek, scalp, chin, upper lip, nose and the forehead. Chondroid syringoma has been found to be affecting middle aged or older male patients. Resection in all respects remains the best therapeutic option to get rid of any kind of recurrence and close follow up can be ascertained due to rarely seen malignant transformation was potency may be still feasible.
