Chondromyxoid fibromas are rare, benign tumours accounting for < 1% of primary bone neoplasms, and most commonly affected in the second or third decades of patient's life. We reported one such case of chondromyxoid fibroma in the distal fibula of a 15-year-old girl. The patient was managed with lower 3 rd fibulectomy & fibular turnoplasty from middle 3 rd fibula with one-third tubular plate fixation for stabilization followed by bone grafting. The patient is disease-free since 3 years.
