Abstract

This study presents a case report of a 52-year-old female patient with a superficial acral fibromyxoma (SAF) of her left foot fifth toe. This is a very uncommon soft tissue tumor that affects mainly hands and feet, with a special predilection for toes, with the hallux most frequent. The tumor in this case was 3cm long and 2.5cm wide, which was unusually large. Few cases are larger than 2cm long and localized on the fifth toe. The
treatment was wide resection of the tumor through amputation of the fifth toe. Level of Evidence V; Therapeutic Studies; Expert Opinion.
