Although chondroblastoma is rare, occasionally it may affect the femoral head with the dilemma of choosing the best surgical approach, which provides better access and avoids complications. We present a case of a 14-year-old female with chondroblastoma in the femoral head, which was treated through surgical hip dislocation by curettage and bone grafting through a transfoveal approach. At the latest follow-up at 24 months, there was no evidence of local recurrence or avascular necrosis on plain radiograph and the patient was pain-free. We believe that this approach is safe to treat such cases, but technically demanding.
