Abstract: Superficial angiomyxoma, also known as cutaneous myxoma, is a rare but distinctive soft tissue tumor characterized by a sparse proliferation of spindle-shaped cells in a prominent myxoid matrix with numerous thin-walled blood vessels. We present a case of a pathologically proven superficial angiomyxoma arising in the first web space of the left hand of a 39-year-old man. Integrated PET/CT images showed mild focal FDG uptake in a subcutaneous soft tissue mass, with a maximum standardized uptake value of 2.94.
