Abstract

26 years old male came to us with H/o pain in the left calcaneum. X-ray showed a lytic lesion in the body of the calcaneum. MRI scan was done & blood investigations were normal. Open biopsy & histopathological examination proved the diagnosis of chondromyxoid fibroma. He was treated in form of curettage & bone grafting taken from left iliac crest along with artificial G-bone. Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare benign tumor of the bone accounting to <1% of bone tumors. It’s occurance in calcaneum is rare. Here we report a rare case of the same.
