Abstract

The spontaneous development of chondroblastoma was seen clinically and demonstrated radiologically in the talus of a 5.5-year-old boy. It was followed for 9.5 years before surgery was performed. Histological examination revealed typical features. This suggests that chondroblastomas may undergo very slow growth and development. The case is compared with 31 other chondroblastomas of the foot.
