Myxoid Neurothekeoma is a rare benign nerve sheath tumor, commonly seen in young females. Patients usually present with a small nodule in different anatomical sites, commonly involving the face and the upper limb. We present the case of a five-month-old boy, who presented with a nodule on the left thumb. Punch biopsy and immunostaining confirmed the diagnosis of myxoid neurothekeoma. We believe this is the first reported case of myxoid neurothekeoma below 12 months of age.
