Fatty tissues lesions are the most frequent of both benign (lipoma) and malignant tumor (liposarcoma) of soft tissues in the adult. We here describe the case of female patient having a fatty tissue mass of the ankle corresponding to an hemosiderotic fibrohistiocytic lipomatous lesion (HFHLL). This very rare tumour of recent description is specific of the ankle/foot area of the middle age women. These lesions are always benign and frequently recur following incomplete resection. This tumor may have invasive local growth and metastases have not been described so far. We describe the anatomopathologist's key points of their diagnostic. We discuss the main differentials diagnosis and treatment.
