Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare, benign, aggressive bone tumor whose localization in the calcaneus is even rarer. We report a case of chondromyxoid fibroma in the calcaneus of a 10-year-old Iranian boy who was treated with extended curettage. After 3 years of follow-up, the patient had experienced no recurrence.
