Neural Fibrolipoma of the Ankle: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Neural fibrolipomas are exceedingly rare benign tumors composed of hypertrophied fibrofatty tissue intermixed with nerve tissues. Our review of the published data identified only 15 cases of this tumor involving the foot and/or ankle region. An otherwise healthy 35-year-old male was referred for evaluation of a painless soft tissue mass present in the anterior left ankle
