Superficial angiomyxoma is a rare, distinctive cutaneous soft-tissue neoplasm, which shows a prominent myxoid matrix with numerous blood vessels. This condition usually presents with a nodular lesion on the trunk, head and neck, or the genital region. We describe a case of superficial angiomyxoma, which presented at an unusual digital location while also demonstrating the features of transepidermal elimination, and which mimicked a digital myxoid cyst.
