A 33-year-old male patient presented to our clinic with a 14-month history of an asymptomatic lesion on the nose. Skin examination revealed a 1-cm painless, firm, flesh-colored nodular lesion on the nose [Figure 1]. He had no systemic disease or any other accompanying skin disease. The patient also had no history of trauma. Routine laboratory tests including complete blood count and liver function tests were normal. The lesion was completely excised. Histopathologic examination revealed a biphasic tumor with epithelial and stromal components in the chondroid matrix that could be distinguished from the surrounding dermis tissue [Figure 2].
