Chondroblastoma of the cuboid
with an associated aneurysmal bone cyst: a case report
We report the case of a young
adult who presented with a painful foot due to chondroblastoma associated with
an aneurismal bone cyst.
Chondroblastoma is a rare benign
cartilaginous neoplasm that accounts for approximately 1% of all bone tumors
and characteristically arises in the epiphysis of a long bone, particularly the
humerus, tibia, and femur. Chondroblastoma can affect people of all ages. It
is, however, most common in children and young adults between the ages of 10
and 20 years. Association of chondroblastoma with aneurysmal bone cyst is well
documented however this association has only once been reported in the cuboid.
Imaging techniques should be
supplemented with an open biopsy for the final diagnosis. Management with
curettage, use of high speed burr and bone grafting has shown very good
