ABSTRACT

Background: Soft tissue tumors of the feet are uncommon and there have been very few reports of large series in the literature. These tumors continue to present the clinician with one of the most difficult problems in medicine.

Case presentation: We present a case of a large multilobular noninfiltrating angiolipoma at the plantar surface of the forefoot. Only three cases occurring at the foot have been previously described. We report this new case due to unusual location of the tumor, the long duration (25 years) of its existence and the unique surgical approach for the tumor excision.

Conclusion: Surgical excision is the treatment of choice and adjuvant radiotherapy is indicated in select cases.

Figure 1: The soft nodular mass at the plantar surface of the forefoot.

Mentions: A 47-year-old man was admitted to our department with a soft nodular mass at the plantar surface of the forefoot (figure 1). He complained of disabling and painful gait until he was unable to walk and had difficulty putting his shoes on. The patient noticed for the first time the nodule 25 years ago but during the preceding 12 months the size of the nodule had increased markedly.
