Myopericytoma is a recently described, rare, soft-tissue tumour with perivascular differentiation of myoid cells. We present a case of myopericytoma occurring around the ankle in a 68-year old man. The patient presented with a history of a lump around the ankle of 4 years’ duration. Clinical presentation, radiological features and histopathologic findings of this case are reported, and the relevant literature is reviewed.
