Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma is a rare low grade malignant soft tissue tumor, mainly affecting middle-aged persons, and located in the distal extremities. The absence of clinical and radiological signs specific to this tumor makes it confused with many benign lesions and leads to inappropriate treatment. Though it is classified as a low grade tumor, it is reported to have an important infiltrative character responsible for a considerable rate of local recurrence. The therapeutic management of this tumor remains a subject of debate, there are no formal standard treatment protocols. In this presentation, we aimed to report the case of a patient with myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma of the foot treated successfully by surgery with adjuvant radiotherapy.
