Nuerothekeoma of Both Feet - A Rare Case

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

Abstract: 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.
