Abstract

Angioleiomyomas are relatively uncommon benign tumors originating from smooth cells of a blood vessel. Although curative by surgical excision, they are rarely diagnosed definitely before surgery. We report on a case of calcified angioleiomyoma occurring on the sole, which was treated by surgical excision without recurrence and a review of literature is presented.
