Malignant chondroid syringoma, previously called "mixed tumor of the skin of the salivary gland type"is a fairly uncommon type of sweat gland tumor. Malignant chondroid syringoma frequently arises from the trunk and extremities, whereas the benign tumor is common to the head region. The present case occurred in a female. The malignant nature of the tumor was evident from repeated recurrences after excision of the mass and histopathological study. Lack of response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy led to widespread metastasis. We report a case of malignant chondroid syringoma with lung metastasis in a 39-year-old female patient and response to chemotherapy. We also reviewed the literatures of malignant chondroid syringoma.
Key words: Malignant chondroid syringoma;Lung metastasis
