A 40-year-old male presented to us with a history of a left foot plantar swelling for 4 months. The swelling was gradually progressive, firm in consistency, 7.5×8 cm, and non-tender. There was no lymphadenopathy. There was no history of fever, discharging sinuses, or pain. There was no history of trauma or barefoot walking.Routine blood investigations including total counts, differential counts, ESR, and alkaline phosphatase were within normal limits. MRI showed a fibrous or muscular origin mass. A working diagnosis of a soft-tissue malignancy was made. The patient was taken up for an excision biopsy, and tissue was sent for histopathological examination. Histopathological report surprisingly revealed a Mycetoma of the left foot.
