Malignant chondroid syringoma is a mixed cutaneous tumor, with epithelial and mesenchymal components, which compromises principally the trunk and extremities. This lesion is quite rare, with few cases related in the literature and no publications demonstrating its involvement of the central nervous system. Histologically, owing to its mixed origin, it represents a lesion that is difficult to recognize, often being confused with basocellular carcinoma. We report the case of a female patient, carrier of malignant chondroid syringoma in the occipital region, with invasion of the central nervous system, who was submitted to surgical excision of the lesion at our service. We also made a brief revision of the literature on the theme.
