Cutaneous myxoma is a rare neoplasm typically occurring as an asymptomatic nodule on the head, neck, and chest regions of adults. However, multiple cutaneous myxoma of the subungual space is even rarer. Here, we report a case of multiple cutaneous myxoma of the subungual space in which the tumor was removed by creating a mid-radial incision while preserving the nail matrix. The excisional biopsy samples were dispatched for histopathological examination and confirmed to be cutaneous myxoma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on multiple cutaneous myxoma of the subungual space.
