Chondromas of the head-and-neck area are rare lesions and more rare over the nose. Chondroma is a benign neoplasm of cartilaginous origin. It is rarely seen over the dorsum of the nose. It causes cosmetic deformity of the nose and face if it arises from the nose. The diagnosis is confirmed by histopathological examination. The treatment is complete surgical excision. We report a case of chondroma arising at the dorsum of the nose which is slightly mobile. Computed tomography scan showed a mild enhancing lesion at the dorsum of the nose which was completely excised via transcolumellar route. Considering its rarity at the dorsum over the nose, we reported this solitary chondroma of the nose. Chondromas have to be kept in mind during evaluation of any mass over the nasal dorsum.
