Chondroid tumors are rare intracranial tumors usually arising from the base of the skull. We present 2 cases of intracranial cartilaginous tumors with unusual location. In case 1, a 19-year-old woman, a chondroma of the falx cerebri with extensive secondary ossification was diagnosed. In case 2, a 30-year-old woman, a low-grade chondrosarcoma was resected from the right frontal lobe. Both patients showed an uneventful clinical course without evidence of disease 4.5 and 6 years after total extirpation. Our cases show that chondromas and low-grade chondrosarcomas of the dura and meninges usually occur in young adults with a good prognosis after complete extirpation.
