Chondroid syringoma is a benign mixed tumor of the skin.[1] The HCRCS variant consists of plasmacytoid cells in a myxochondroid/hyaline stroma and stains for cytokeratin, S100, vimentin, and sometimes actin and calponin.[5] The HCRCS variant appears on extremities. Surgical excision is diagnostic and curative. Recurrence occurs due to incomplete excision.[1,6]
