Extraskeletal chondromas are unusual benign skeletal tumors which do not arise from the bone or perisoteum. They are predisposed to occur in adults usually around the knee joint. We report a rare form of Extraskeletal chondroma arising from the outer layer of the capsule of the hip joint in an adolescent male which was excised surgically and it turned out to be a  para-articular chondroma of the hip joint. In conclusion, ESPAOC lesions are extremely rare. It requires a thorough clinical examination and radiographic investigation to diagnose these tumors. The treatment is surgical excision of the tumor mass. A total excision might not be possible in all patients such as ours. In these cases, the part of the tumor causing symptomatic disconcern might be excised to allow functional range of movements of the affected joint.
