Abstract

Chondromyxoid fibromas are rare, benign tumours account for <1% of primary bone neoplasms. Most commonly affected in 2nd and 3rdof life. We report one such case of chondromyxoid fibroma in distal fibula of a 15-year-old girl. The patient was managed with lower 3rd fibulectomy and fibular turnoplasty from middle 3rd fibula with 1/3rd tubular plate fixation for stabilization followed by bone grafting. The patient is disease free since 3 years.
