Chondromyxoid fibroma is a benign tumour of cartilaginous origin which produces simultaneously fibrous, chondroid and myxoid tissue. It is a very rare tumour, forming only 0.4% of all bone tumours according to Mirra (1980). It was characterised by Jaffe and Lichtenstein in 1948 and may raise difficult problems of diagnosis from certain other tumours of cartilaginous origin.
