Extraskeletal chondroma is a benign tumor that is found most often in the fingers but can be found in the feet as well. A symptom of this lesion is pressure from the slow-growing mass. We present the case of a 58-year-old woman who presented with an extraskeletal chondroma in the plantar aspect of the left first metatarsophalangeal joint with concomitant symptomatic arthrosis at the joint. Operative treatment was excision of the lesion in addition to arthrodesis of the joint attributable to the presence of symptomatic arthrosis. The patient was seen approximately 1 year postoperatively and had no postoperative complications. Distinction between extraskeletal chondromas and other lesions, such as extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcomas, is critical because delayed treatment of the latter has the propensity to lead to detriment to the patient. Therefore, proper diagnosis is critical.
