Myxofibrosarcoma is a distinct malignant neoplasm of fibroblastic origin with variable clinical and histopathologic features. It is common in elderly, and up to two thirds present as dermal tumors, frequently with infiltrative borders making complete resection difficult. We present here a case, which initially on clinical and radiological grounds appeared as a benign hemangioma, but turned out to be myxofibrosarcoma on histopathological examination, to highlight the diagnostic difficulties it may present. This patient was treated according to standard protocol including radiation therapy and followed for 1 year without any evidence of local recurrence or metastasis.
