Superficial acral fibromyxoma is a rare soft tissue tumour affecting the digits, particularly the nail bed region. The condition was first described in 2001. We report the case of a 71-year-old man who presented with a long standing history of a lump affecting the pulp of the his right ring finger. This was surgically excised and subsequent pathological analysis confirmed the lesion to have been a superficial acral fibromyxoma. We use this case to highlight the features of this rare clinical entity, which has never previously been described in the surgical literature.
