Myxofibrosarcoma may present as a dermal or subcutaneous nodule, often on the extremity of an elderly patient. We present a case of myxofibrosarcoma on the lower leg of a 77-year-old man, which illustrates the deeply infiltrative growth pattern of these tumors, as well as the potential for superficial biopsies to show lower grade histopathologic features than subsequent excision specimens.
