Abstract

Pleomorphic hyalinizing angiectatic tumor (PHAT) is a rare, slow-growing mass , which are locally aggressive and classified as tumors of borderline malignancy. In this study we report a case of subcutaneous ankle mass in 43 years old female since 2 years ago with pathological diagnosis of PHAT ,characterized by clusters of ectatic, fibrin-lined, thin-walled vessels which are surrounded by a spindled or pleomorphic neoplastic stroma.
