Cartilaginous tumors of the nasal septum are extremely rare. We describe a 17-year-old male patient who presented with nasal deformity and complete obstruction of one of the nasal passages since childhood. The tumor was located anteroinferiorly on the nasal septum. A biopsy revealed findings consistent with chondroma of the nasal septum. The tumor was removed completely by a combined endoscopic and external subnasal approach. The patient was followed up and after two years, he did not show any signs of recurrence on re-evaluation.
