Spindle cell lipoma: a rare case report on the hallux


Spindle cell lipomas are a rare type of lipoma usually presenting in middle-aged to older men, often located on the posterior neck or shoulder; presentation on the foot is exceptionally uncommon. We report a 24-year-old man with spindle cell lipomas on the hallux of his left foot. He experienced an uneventful recovery after excision of the mass. We discuss clinical, radiologic, and histopathologic features of spindle cell lipomas and we review the differential diagnosis at this anatomic site.
