Chondroblastoma is a rare tumor, representing only 1-3% of all primary bone tumors, with local pain and swelling lasting for several months as the most important symptoms. It is usually seen as a lytic lesion involving the epiphysis with a thin border of sclerosis and central punctuate calcification in half of the cases in radiographs. It usually causes expansion or enlargement in the affected site. Primary patella lesions are categorized into benign and malignant tumors and metabolic disorders. Giant cell tumor is the most likely differential diagnoses with tumors of the patella. Patella is a relative uncommon site for chondroblastoma.Most of cases of chondroblastoma in patella reported in literature are treated with patellectomy.We treated a large chondroblastic lesion in patella of an 22 year old male with curettage, burring and bone graft and the result was satisfactory after 8 months postoperation,with complete consolidation of new bone on radiographs, absence of pain and full range of knee motion.
