Abstract

ABSTRACT:: Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma (EMC) is a rare soft tissue sarcoma usually presenting in proximal extremities of middle-aged men. The authors discuss a unique case of EMC, localized in the plantar foot of a 76-year-old woman, clinically suspected as plantar fibromatosis. It is important to avoid misdiagnosis of EMC because of their propensity for late recurrence and their metastatic potential.
