The treatment options for recurrent chondromyxoid fibroma of the toe range from total amputation to salvaging a functional toe. There is no globally accepted treatment protocol available for this tumour because of its rarer incidence and lack of population based data. Here we suggest performing a staged approach, which involves en block resection initially and maintenance of metatarsophalangeal space by using a kirshner wire with the bone cement. If there is no sign of malignancy in the histopathology, we recommend performing interposition arthroplasty at the metatarsophalangeal joint with the tricortical iliac crest graft. The kirshner wire should be kept which incorporates the iliac graft and the soft tissue, which is being interposed at the metatarsal head. This will cause pseudoarthrosis and also decreases the chances of having chronic pain. We believe that this staged approach which leads to toe salvage is the best suitable treatment option for the recurrent chondromyxoid fibroma. This will prevent amputation of the toe and will give cosmetic success to the patient
