Abstract

The Clear Cell Sarcoma of Tendons and Aponeurosis is an extremely rare melanin producing soft tissue tumor. It accounts for nearly 1% of all soft tissue tumors. Clear cell sarcoma affects commonly young adults between age group of 20-40 years and most common sites are foot and ankle. It has histological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural similarities with the more common primary (or metastatic) malignant melanoma causing major diagnostic confusion. We present a case of a 55-year lady with clear cell sarcoma of right foot which is extremely rare for this age group.
