Abstract

Many malignant superficial soft tissue masses of the extremities in absence of any skin change may resemble clinically benign ones, presenting a diagnostic challenge.1 Superficial soft-tissue masses can generally be categorized as mesenchymal tumours, skin appendage lesions, metastatic tumours, other tumours and tumour-like lesions, or inflammatory lesions. The differential diagnosis may be limited further by considering the age of the patient, anatomic location of the lesion, characteristic imaging features, and clinical manifestations.2
