Myopericytoma is a rare soft tissue tumor found in the subcutaneous and superficial soft tissues in the extremities. The present study reports a unique case of myopericytomas found in the first and second toes of a patient. The masses were surgically excised, and on pathologic and immunohistochemical examination, the diagnosis of myopericytoma was made. At the follow-up visit, the patient had no recurrence of the soft tissue tumor.
