Chondroma of the trachea is a rare neoplasm. Primary tracheal neoplasms are most frequently found in the lower one-third of the trachea. The vast majority of tracheal tumors in adults are malignant. More commonly, the trachea may be involved secondarily by direct extension of tumors of the thyroid, esophagus, larynx, or bronchus. Several authors have reported on the potential of chondromas to undergo sarcomatous change and convert into malignant chondrosarcoma. Because of its recognized potential for local recurrence, a localized chondroma of the trachea is best managed by tracheal resection. We present a case of a 65-year-old male presenting with tracheal chondroma which was diagnosed preoperatively using fine-needle aspiration cytology and computed tomography scan and treated by tracheal resection and anastomosis.
