AbstractA pleomorphic hyalinizing angiectatic tumor (PHAT) mainly affects superficial soft tissue in the lower extremities. PHAT is classified as a borderline/intermediate-grade soft tissue tumor because of the substantial risk of local recurrence. The diagnosis is based on histological, clinical, immunochemical, and radiological findings. We offer a case report of a middle-aged woman who presented with a painful slow-growing subcutaneous soft tissue mass in her left lateral thigh. An MRI scan showed a tumor mass located within the tensor fascia lata and iliotibial tract. The overall features were suggestive of a PHAT. This lesion often is CD34-positive and almost always is S100-negative; these features are used to differentiate PHAT from other conditions
