Choristoma is a tumour like mass which is an island of normal cells or tissues in abnormal locations due to defects during embryological development. Choristoma is most frequently seen in the tongue and presence of choristoma in the tonsil is extremely rare. On histopathological examination, an island of mature cartilage with normal appearing chondrocytes amidst the lymphoid follicles were seen. We present here a case of cartilaginous choristoma with the complaint of chronic tonsillitis.
