Author information

Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Hospital Dresden-Friedrichstadt, Academic Teaching Hospital of the Technical University of Dresden, Dresden, Germany.


Myxoid neurothekeoma is a rare benign asymptomatic tumor of the skin. Most tumors are located on the head, shoulders and arms. We present a 19-year-old female patient with a relapsing tumor of this type in a less common localization, i.e., lower trunk, and with painful sensations under mechanical pressure. Wide excision surgery led to complete remission.
