Chondrolipoma of the breast is a rare mesenchymal tumor and only a few cases have been reported so far. We present a case of a patient with a breast mass that was surgically removed, diagnosed as a fibroadenoma, and pathohistologically verified as a chondrolipoma. Macroscopically, the tumor presented as a well-circumscribed, firm white nodule resembling a fibroadenoma, and was microscopically characterized as fat lobules with isles of hyaline cartilage. We also present a review of literature and differential diagnoses.
