Chondromyxoid fibroma (CMF) is a rare benign cartilaginous tumour accounting to less than 1% of bone tumours. It is most commonly seen in lower extremity involving tibia. CMF of radius is rare. We report a rare case of CMF of proximal radius in a 37-year-old female who presented with swelling and pain over right elbow. Wide local excision of proximal radius along with radial head was done and above elbow POP slab was applied for one month. Elbow range of movement exercises started after one month.
