Nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma has characteristic clinicopathological features and it is accepted as the upper airway analogue of mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall. It is a rare lesion and only 31 cases have been reported in the English literature until 2014. In this article, a 13-year-old nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma case is presented, which is the first nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma case from Turkey. Although, nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma has been accepted as a benign lesion, the possibility of malignant transformation should be kept in mind, and detailed histologic examination should be performed particularly in adult nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma cases. © 2016, Turkish Journal of Pediatrics.
