Abstract.

The clinicoradiologic and pathologic aspects of an intracortical, diaphyseal chondromyxoid fibroma of the humerus are reported. Because of the location of the lesion, the possibility of chondromyxoid fibroma was not considered radiologically. The diagnosis was made only after histologic examination of tissue obtained via an open biopsy, which led to the appropriate treatment, surgical curettage.
