Extraskeletal chondroma is a relatively uncommon benign soft tissue tumor, which usually occurs in the hands and feet. The tumor may also occur around the tendon, synovium, or joint capsule. Rare sites are the tongue, testes and liver. Chondroma of the fallopian tube is extremely rare, with only two reports in the English literature. We present the first reported case of extraskeletal chondroma of the fallopian tube causing transportation impairment of the fertilized ovum in a 32-year-old gravida 1, para 1 woman.
