Juxta-articular myxoma (JAM) is a very rare myxoid tumor in pediatric age. JAM is frequently located at large joints, particularly in the knee, and most lesions present as palpable swelling sometimes associated with pain or tenderness. Only three cases of pediatric JAM have been reported in the literature to date. We describe a case of JAM in a 12-year-old boy, characterized by several unique aspects related to age, site of onset, size, and associated symptoms.
