Chondromyxoid Fibroma of the Rib: A Rare Benign Tumor With Potential for Local Recurrence.

Curēus 2021 October
Chondromyxoid fibroma (CMF) is a benign cartilaginous tumor that typically occurs in the long bones of young adult males, with the clinical presentation varying from asymptomatic to localized pain, swelling, and movement restriction. We report an unusual presentation of CMF involving a rib, along with a literature review of the management of CMF. Although benign, local recurrence is not uncommon, and malignant transformation has been reported on rare occasions. En bloc surgical excision, with adequate tumor-free resection margins, of radiologically suspected chondromyxoid fibroma is crucial for the treatment and confirmation of diagnosis. A high index of suspicion, adequate treatment, and follow-up are critical for the successful management of these uncommon benign chondroid tumors.
