A 26-year-old man attended the outpatient department of Otorhinolaryngology with complaint of nose block. He was presented with nonspecific clinical presentations except nasal block. Mass was present at the nasopharynx and completely excised and sent for biopsy which confirmed the diagnosis of cartilaginous choriostoma. The histopathological report revealed cartilaginous tissue with surrounding of seromucous salivary glands under cover of respiratory epithelium. The choristoma is a tumor like lesion consisting of normal cells present in the abnormal site. It is most often seen in oral cavity structures such as tongue, gingival, buccal mucosa and soft palate. Cartilage choristoma is rarely found at the nasopharynx. It is developmental in origin. Definite diagnosis is done by histopathological findings. The treatment is usually done by the surgical excision.
