Jaffe and Liechtenstein in 1942 introduced the term “benign chondroblastoma”, although this tumour had been described earlier as calcifying giant cell tumour by Ewing (1923) and epiphyseal giant cell tumour by Codman (1931). Recognition of benign chondroblastoma is important because this is at times over diagnosed as chondrosarcoma (Phemister 1930) or as osteosarcoma (King 1931). We are presenting a case report of a benign chondroblastoma which arose from the diaphysis of the radius (a rare site) following fracture of both the forearm bones. Excision of the affected area of the radius and grafting the gap with fibula was successful.
