A case of Subcutaneous thumb tumor

A 58&-year-old man presented with a 2-year history of a painless subcutaneous mass on the right thumb. The tumor had gradually increased in size and there was no preceding history of trauma. Physical examination revealed a solitary tumor on the thumb tip underneath indurate, pink skin of 1 cm size. A radiograph of the affected part revealed no abnormality. Histological examination revealed a mass composed of spindle‑shaped cells [Figure 1].
