Nuerothekeoma of Both Feet - A Rare Case

Dr. Suganya.S, Dr. Oudeacoumar.P, Dr. Sovana.S

Nerve sheath myxomas (neurothekeoma) are uncommon tumors of nerve sheath origin. They are more common in females and younger individuals. The first neurothekeoma was reported in the literature as a nerve sheath myxoma by Harkin and Reed in 1969 [1]. However, this type of tumor received its current definition as neurothekeoma in 1980 by Gallager and Helwig [2]. These tumors most frequently arise in the dermis and subcutaneous tissues of the head and neck, and upper extremities and most common in females with a mean age of 21.6 years and are usually asymptomatic [3]. These are typically slow growing, painless lesions that are less than 3 cm diameter. We report a case of neurothekeoma of the feet of more than 3 cm in size.
