Abstract

Pleomorphic hyalinizing angiectatic tumor (PHAT) of soft parts is a rare soft tissue neoplasm. Few cases have been reported in the literature thus far. PHAT is a spindle cell neoplasm with a prominent vascular component which displays some features of both neurilemoma and malignant fibrous histiocytoma. Lesions typically occur on the lower extremities of adults, however, lesions in other anatomic locations have been described. In this paper, we report a 60 years old female with PHAT of the right foot and review the current literature.
