Chondroma of Soft Tissue
Chondroma of soft tissue is relatively uncommon and only sporadic cases have been described in the literature(Stout, et al. Lichtenstein, et a1 and Shellite, et al), until recent extensive reviews of extraskeletal chondroma which were done by Dahlin, et al(70 cases) and Chung, et al(104 cases). Most of the tumors occurred in the hand and feet as a small mass usually less than 3 cm. In the second and third decades with only a few cases observed at other sites such as skeletal muscle, nasopharynx, cheek, tongue and subcutaneous region. Its clinical significance lied in the considerable difficulty in diagnosis, because some of them were closely resembled to the extraskeletal chondrosarcoma or myxosarcoma, but its etiology is not yet established. This paper deals with a case of large chondroma of soft tissue occurred in the left foot ankle of a 23- year- old male who admitted to the Korean Army Hospital with foreign body sensation and mild restriction of joint motion for a year.
