A case of recurrent anterior chest wall tumor who had previous operation for same lesion 12 years ago with pathologic diagnosis of chondroma, has been reported. Wide en-bloc excision of tumor together with lower sternum, ksifoid and costal kartilages with a safety margin of 4 cm was performed. Chest wall defect which is about 14x20 cm was repaired with polytetraflouroethylene (PTFE) greft. No complication was seen postoperatively. Pathological result was benign chondroma.

Radical wide excision is necessary for all primary chest wall tumors in order to reach absolute microscopic diagnosis, prevent recurrences and to provide best chance for cure. Chest wall stabilization with various kind of greft is possible.
