Foot plantar soft tissue malignant myoepithelioma tumor: Case report and review of the literature

Academic Article


  • The spectrum of myoepithelial tumors usually occur in the salivary glands, and occasionally in the skin, breast, upper aero-digestive tract, and soft tissues. The myoepithelial tumors have no sex predominance and usually present within a wide range of age of distribution around the third and fifth decades. We describe a 12 year old male patient with primary malignant myoepithelial tumor in the foot plantar soft tissues. Including this tumor with unusual location, and age of presentation is essential in the differential diagnosis for soft tissue tumors in the pediatric population.
