Superficial acral fibromyxoma (SAFM) is an uncommon mesenchymal soft tissue tumor with a predilection for the acral extremites and nail bed involvement. SAFM is diagnosed with clinicopathological and immunohistochemical examination. Awareness of this rare tumor is important because of amounts of benign and malignant neoplasms. We report a case of SAFM in a rare localization in the heel with a new finding on dermoscopy.
