Chondromyxoid fibroma is an exceptional, benign, gradually progressive cartilaginous neoplasm initially scripted by Jaffe and Lichtenstein in 1948 . World Health Organization defines chondromyxoid fibroma as a “benign tumour characterized by lobules of spindle-shaped or stellate cells that proliferate within an abundant intercellular matrix that can be myxoid, chondroid or fibrous in nature”. Classically, the benign chondromyxoid fibroma displays incomplete cartilaginous differentiation.
