Tumors of the medial malleolus are rare. Chondrogenic tumors of the medial malleolus are extremely rare. The purpose is to present a rare tumor occurring at an unusual site and its successful management. We report a case of a 30-year-old female with Chondroblastoma of the medial malleolus with its clinical features, radiographic features, differential diagnosis, and management of this unusual site. Treatment comprised of open biopsy followed by aggressive curettage, phenolization and bone cement. Symptoms resolved after treatment with the resumption of normal activities and no signs of recurrence on 1-year follow-up. This case appears to be the first reported case of chondroblastoma occurring at medial malleolus. This case report will increase the awareness of this rare tumor occurring at this unusual site thereby avoiding any chance of misdiagnosis.
