AbstractRationale:Chondroid syringoma (CS) occurs mostly on the face and neck, and rarely occurs in the toe. Malignant CS is invasive, grows quickly, and has a high recurrence rate. The presence of a bilobed CS in 1 toe has never been reported in the literature.Patient concerns:A 72-year-old male patient presented with a mass in a third toe of his right foot. The mass had slowly grown in 2 years. He felt mild pain and the mass occupied most of the tip of the toe.Diagnoses:Radiographs showed a large soft-tissue mass in the third toe of his right foot without any bone destruction. Ultrasonogram showed 2 partly fused hypoechoic masses within the lesion. The mass was therefore diagnosed as a benign CS.Interventions:We amputated the toe with the mass under local anesthesia. The postoperative pathohistological examinations confirmed that the lesion was a bipartite CS exhibiting active cellular proliferation.Outcomes:Two years after surgery, there was no tumor recurrence.Lessons:CS can also present as multiple adjacent masses. Complete surgical resection and long-term follow-up are essential.
