Enchondroma is a benign tumor that often arises from short tubular bone and cartilage of the joints of the arms and legs, but rarely arises from the ribs. Herein, we described a 17-year-old Chinese female who presented with a 2.5 cm × 1.5 cm × 1cm mass in the left fifth rib. After resection of the lesion, a histopathologic diagnosis of endogenous chondroma was rendered. She has shown no local recurrence or distal disease in a 2 year follow-up period. Furthermore, gene detection analysis indicated that there were seven genes of BRCA1, BCL2L11, MET, NOTCH4, WT1, CCND1 and FGF19 with abnormalities, including mutation, deletion and amplification.
