Choriostoma is a mass of histologically normal tissue in an abnormal location. It is a developmental anomaly of second pharyngeal arch, follows a benign course and could be the cause of recurrent tonsillitis. Here, we report a case of 36 year old male who presented with recurrent episodes of tonsillitis. Histopathology revealed islands of mature hyaline cartilage surrounded by lymphoid follicles along with areas of calcification.
