In the second case, due to the location of the tumor in preauricular region, cartilaginous stroma aspirated was misinterpreted as chondroid stroma of pleomorphic adenoma in the salivary gland. Extremely well circumscribed tumor of epiphysis with spotty calcifications in patient with open epiphysis. Chondroblastoma is an uncommon benign cartilage producing neoplasm with a characteristic epiphyseal cytoloby.
The overall cytological features of chondroblastoma are very much characteristic which helps in diagnosing this tumour with a high degree of precision on fine-needle aspiration FNA.

Fine needle aspiration cytology of chondroblastoma and chondromyxoid fibroma: Few benign osteoclastic giant cells were seen in case 2.
The nuclei of the chondroblasts are round-to-ovoid, sometimes bean-shaped, and nuclear folding often causes nuclear grooves to be identified. Instead, stellate cells with pleomorphism are noted.

In correlation with the radiological findings, a provisional diagnosis suggestive of chondroblastoma was offered. Conclusion Fine needle aspiration cytology provides a simple, quick, easy and reliable method of preoperative diagnosis of chondroblastoma and can be used as a substitute of surgical biopsy. Magnetic resonance imaging of leg showed abnormal marrow infiltration in medullary cavity of head and upper shaft of fibula hypo-intense on T1-weighted T2-weighted sequences and hypo-to hyper-intense on short tau inversion recovery STIR sequence, the vertical length being 8 cm approximately.
Other methods such as curettage alone, endoscopic curettage, endoscopic curettage with cementation, curettage with fat implantation, resection with allograft replacement, marginal resection radiofrequency ablation and osteochondral autograft transfer have also been used with some success.
