Superficial acral fibromyxoma is a rare, benign, slow-growing, soft-tissue tumor commonly located in the acral regions, with a predilection for the great toe, developing from the nail unit. Because of its nonspecific features and rarity, clinical diagnosis is difficult. In this article, we present a case of superficial acral fibromyxoma located in the nail unit with new dermatoscopic and radiologic findings that have not been previously reported in the literature.
