Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma of the soft tissues is a rare low-grade tumor of uncertain origin that most often occurs on the extremities of adults. The tumor predominantly involves the subcutaneous tissues of the hands and feet. Despite being a rare neoplasm, owing to its varied histologic appearance, myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma should be differentiated from various benign and malignant soft-tissue lesions. Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma has been well described in pathology journals but not in the surgical literature. We report a case of myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma in a 19-year-old man with a plantar ulcer lesion in his left foot. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in the literature involving the epidermis.
