Al-Buainain H, Pal K, El Shafie H, Mitra DK, Shawarby MA - Indian J Dermatol (2009)

Bottom Line: Myxoid Neurothekeoma is a rare benign nerve sheath tumor, commonly seen in young females.Patients usually present with a small nodule in different anatomical sites, commonly involving the face and the upper limb.We present the case of a five-month-old boy, who presented with a nodule on the left thumb.

ABSTRACT
Myxoid Neurothekeoma is a rare benign nerve sheath tumor, commonly seen in young females. Patients usually present with a small nodule in different anatomical sites, commonly involving the face and the upper limb. We present the case of a five-month-old boy, who presented with a nodule on the left thumb. Punch biopsy and immunostaining confirmed the diagnosis of myxoid neurothekeoma. We believe this is the first reported case of myxoid neurothekeoma below 12 months of age.

Figure 0004: S-100 positive cells (arrow) within hypocellular lobular mass

Mentions: A five-month-old boy was brought with left thumb swelling of three weeks’ duration. It was a 0.5 × 0.5cm2, pinkish red, firm, immobile, non tender, non fluctuant intradermal swelling, with intact overlying skin [Figure 1]. There was no history of trauma. Punch biopsy revealed fairly well circumscribed hypocellular lobular masses, with abundant spindle cells in the dermis, positive staining for S100, alcian blue and mucoid stroma [Figures 2–4].
