Introduction: Chondrosarcoma includes several anatomical clinical forms of tumors with cartilaginous histogenesis. It is a malignant tumor whose tumor cells are associated with a cartilage matrix. Case report: We present the case of a patient with stage 1 chondrosarcoma of the proximal part of the left fibula. The patient underwent a proximal fibula resection with a favorable outcome. Conclusion: Resection of tumors of the proximal fibula may cause knee instability, peroneal palsy through the involvement of the external popliteal sciatic nerve or with local radiotherapy, a higher risk of delayed healing, and the occurrence of fracture. Despite the risks of resection of the proximal fibula, good functional results can be obtained.
