A 48-year-old female with an atypical plaque-like lesion of the lower leg is presented in this article. Histologic investigation revealed a rare low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (pT1a cN0 cM0; stage Ia) of suprafascial localization. Staging of the patient did not reveal metastatic spread. The tumor was surgically removed with wide safety margins. The defect was closed using a mesh graft transplant and vacuum-assisted closure. Healing was complete. Regular follow-up for at least 5 years is recommended. Besides the rareness of this tumor, this case is also remarkable because of the localization on the lower leg and the suprafascial soft tissue.
