Abstract

Superficial angiomyxoma is a distinctive cutaneous soft tissue neoplasm commonly involving dermal and subcutaneous tissues and showing a prominent angiomyxoid matrix interspersed with numerous blood vessels.We report a case of superficial angiomyxoma in a 70-year-old man who presentedwith a fungating swelling on the distal phalanx of the thumbmimicking amalignant tumor. The diagnosis of superficial angiomyxoma was made based on histopathology and immunohistochemistry.We report this lesion because of its rare presentation with extensive distal phalangeal osteolysis mimicking a malignant bone tumor.
