Pleomorphic hyalinized angiectatic tumor of soft parts is a recently described neoplasm that most commonly affects the lower extremities. It is locally aggressive but has not been known to metastasize. This article presents a case of a softball-sized tumor on the dorsum of the foot that was identified as pleomorphic hyalinized angiectatic tumor of soft parts. Previously, it would have been misdiagnosed and treated as either a neurilemoma or a malignant fibrous histiocytoma.
