The angiomyxolipoma is a very rare clinical entity that is considered a variant form of a common lipoma or of a spindle-cell lipoma, however two distinct entities are currently controversial. We report a 56-year-old previous healthy woman who had chief complaint of slow growing mass on the right foot for 3 years. Radiologic examination, ultrasonography, excision biopsy, immunohistochemistry was evaluated. Final diagnosis of angiomyxolipoma was done. We reviewed current articles about angiomyxolipoma and compared with our result. We discussed about its clinical significance.
