Foot is an uncommon site for chondrosarcoma and involvement of phalanges is extremely rare. Here, a case of low-grade chondrosarcoma of the distal phalanx of the right great toe in a 37-year-old male patient is being reported. The patient complained of gradual swelling of the right great toe and pain for last 2 years. X-ray showed a lytic lesion destroying the distal phalanx with soft tissue extension. Amputation of the great toe was done and specimen was sent for histopathological examination. Microscopical examination revealed grade 1 chodrosarcoma infiltrating the surrounding soft tissue and muscle. The patient is on 1-year follow-up which is uneventful.
