Superficial acral fibromyxoma is a rare clinical entity, first described in 2001. It is a soft tissue tumor with a predilection for the fingers and toes. Since it was described, few cases have been reported. We present a case of an 88-year-old male with a history of a slow-growing lump in his left great toe after local trauma. The patient underwent surgical excision, and pathologic analysis revealed the diagnosis of superficial acral fibromyxoma. Although an unusual diagnosis, surgeons should be aware of this myxoid tumor, which requires complete surgical excision and short-term follow-up to detect recurrence...

We present a 27-year-old male with multiple nonpainful soft tissue masses over several metacarpals, bilateral elbows, the left wrist, and both knees since the age of 4. Physical exam was significant for firm, nonmobile, nodular growths over the extensor surfaces of bilateral elbows and knees and on the 2nd and 5th metacarpal phalangeal joints. Laboratory studies revealed an unremarkable rheumatoid factor, negative ANA screening and normal joint radiographs. Differential diagnosis included subcutaneous granuloma annulare (SGA), seronegative rheumatoid nodule, and calcinosis cutis...

A 53-year-old man presented to the orthopedic outpatient clinic with pain and swelling in the right heel without any trauma. On physical examination and radiologic assessment, a lesion with calcification and peripheral sclerosis was detected in the medullary cavity of the calcaneus, and computed tomographic images revealed cortical thinning adjacent to the lesion. Magnetic resonance images showed a 23 × 19-mm lesion. Tru-Cut biopsy, performed to clarify the diagnosis, revealed an enchondroma. As a definitive treatment, curettage of the lesion and grafting of the cavity was performed...

A sixty-one year old white female was referred to the Dermatology Department to treat an ingrown nail in the inner corner of the left hallux. Examination of the entire nail unit showed the presence of xanthonychia in the outer corner besides thickening and increase in the transverse curvature of the nail plate. Dermoscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance of the free edge of the nail plate detected characteristic signs of onychomatricoma, a diagnosis that was later confirmed by anatomopathological exam.

INTRODUCTION: The majority of patients with extremity sarcoma can be surgically treated without amputation. However, limb-salvage surgery for foot sarcomas including the calcaneus remains challenging. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 71-year-old man presented with a 5-year history of right heel persistent pain. Imaging studies revealed an osteolytic, destructive and highly metabolic lesion in the right calcaneus. Computed tomography guided core needle biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of grade 2 chondrosarcoma...

This article describes a case of 68-years-old male with very atypic variation of multiple myeloma occuring as multifocal osteolysis limited to tibiae, cuboid bone, radius and ulna, in the absence of diffuse bone marrow infiltration. The main goal of this article is to point out the importance of permanent awareness during diagnostics and treatment of this insidious disease.

This is a case report of a 24-year-old man who presented with increased pain and firm swelling of the right foot after a minor twisting injury. Radiography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings showed ancillary information that was helpful for surgical treatment. The final diagnosis was confirmed as chondroblastoma of the navicular bone based on the pathology report. The navicularbone is a very rare site in the foot, where we should pay attention to chondroblastoma.

Intraosseous ganglia are benign cystic lesions located in the subchondral bone. Intraosseous ganglion cysts of the ankle are relatively uncommon. We present a case of recurrent intraosseous ganglion in the ankle of a 41-year-old female who had recurrence after initial surgery. She was treated effectively by curettage and autogenous cancellous bone grafting. At the final follow-up, satisfactory results were obtained with no recurrence or complications.

The calcaneus is the most common tarsal affected by unicameral bone cysts (UBCs); however, the treatment of calcaneal UBCs remains controversial. The purpose of the present systematic review was to evaluate the treatment modalities for calcaneal UBCs. A systematic review was performed using clinical studies of calcaneal UBCs with a minimum of 1 year of follow-up and level I to IV evidence. Ten studies with 171 patients (181 cysts) were selected. Heel pain and radiographic cyst consolidation were the primary outcomes...

Intra-articular post-traumatic ankle joint mass is a rare entity that may mimic other pathologies, mainly localized form of pigmented villonodular synovitis (LPVS) regarding the clinical and imaging characteristics. We report the case of a 16-year-old female patient that presented an intra-articular ankle joint mass 8 months after an ankle joint sprain for which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suggested LPVS as possible diagnosis due to the presence of hemosiderin deposits. Diagnosis of a post-traumatic hematoma of her ankle joint was made via fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy and anterior ankle arthroscopy...

Chondroblastomas account for <2% of all bone tumors. The calcaneus is the fifth most common location of occurrence. Males in their second decade of life are most often affected, presenting with an insidious onset of localized pain, swelling, and tenderness. The finding of associated pathologic fracture has been rare. Imaging studies can aid in the formulation of the differential diagnosis and surgical plan. The definitive diagnosis requires histologic examination. Curettage and bone grafting is curative in >80% of cases...

Carcinoma cuniculatum is a rarely occurring, low-grade variant of squamous cell carcinoma most commonly found in the forefoot. It should be suspected in the differential diagnosis for chronic nonhealing verrucous wounds. The initial diagnosis of carcinoma cuniculatum is difficult and often delayed and can require repeated histopathologic evaluation by an experienced pathologist. In many cases, the final diagnosis will be made from the microscopic findings correlated with the clinical examination findings. Metastasis from carcinoma cuniculatum is rare, although it can invade deep into the soft tissues and can extend to the bone...

Schwannomas of osseous origin are rare, and schwannomas of the short tubular bones are even rarer. These benign-looking tumors are difficult to diagnose using imaging alone. However, histopathologic evaluation of a biopsy specimen can establish the diagnosis by identifying Antoni type A and B zones. Curettage and bone grafting will probably be adequate for treatment because malignant changes are unlikely. Large lesions can require en bloc excision and reconstruction. We describe what appears to be only the second case of a schwannoma in the first metatarsal of the foot in a 48-year-old woman...

UNLABELLED: Verrucous carcinoma is a slow-growing lesion that is most often found on the weight-bearing surface of the foot and should be considered in the differential diagnosis for chronic nonhealing wounds in the diabetic neuropathic population. Accurate diagnosis may be difficult initially and often requires repeat histopathologic evaluation by an experienced pathologist. Verrucous carcinoma can invade deeper tissues; however, extension to bone is a rare occurrence. The authors present a case report of an atypical verrucous carcinoma on the dorsal aspect of the foot and a review of the literature...

Proliferative verrucous leukoplakia, a lesion of unknown origin with no strictly defined diagnostic criteria, is worthy of great clinical concern and scrutiny. Treatment options vary, with no consensus regarding the most efficient and effective strategy. Further complicating the unusual biology and behavior of this lesion is its usual multifocal presentation and progression, with lifelong vigilance required after treatment. Verrucous carcinoma is a progressive lesion with high recurrence and 5-year survival rates...

The authors analyzed the clinical results of surgical excision for symptomatic or recurrent ganglion cysts of the foot and ankle, and tried to elucidate the prognostic factors. Fifty-three cases of ganglions in the foot and ankle were followed for more than 24 months after excision. The mean duration of follow-up was 3.7 years. As a preceding treatment, 17 cases received a mean of 1.3 aspirations, and 16 cases recurred after a mean of 1.7 operations. The cyst was most common in the dorsum of the foot and ankle, where 35 cases were found...
