Chondrolipoma of the breast is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor composed of mature cartilage and adipose tissue. We present one such case in a 55-year-old woman presenting with left breast lump detected by self-examination. The tumor was diagnosed as fibroadenoma clinically. The diagnosis of chondrolipoma was possible only by histopathological examination. This case is reported because of its rarity in breast.
