• A histologic diagnosis of cartilaginous tumor was made from solitary nodular skin lesions of two patients. Lack of information about cartilage tumors in the dermatologic literature suggests that they rarely develop as superficial lesions. Despite a high incidence of nuclear changes suggesting malignant neoplasm, the majority behave in a benign fashion and can be treated conservatively.
