Neurothekeoma is a rare, benign, cutaneous tumor of nerve sheath origin that is also termed benign nerve sheath myxoma. This tumor is usually asymptomatic and grows slowly. Neurothekeoma is typically found in young adults and seldom occurs in children. It is most commonly located in the head, neck, and upper extremity and extremely rarely found in the lower leg. We report a rare case of ankle neurothekeoma in a child, with a review of the related published data.
