Adult rhabdomyoma is a rare benign tumor. It mainly occurs in the head and neck region and rarely occurs outside the head and neck region. We present an extremely rare case of the adult rhabdomyoma arising in the left foot in a 46-year-old male. Microscopically, large polygonal cells and large strap-shaped cells were observed. This is the third case of adult rhabdomyoma arising in an extremity.
