Description Heel pain is a common presentation in outpatient clinics. Here, we report a 69-year-old woman who complaint about a painful nodule on her left posterior heel. There was no history of trauma. The lesion developed during ten weeks without any bleeding or ulceration. On examination, we observed a subcutaneous firm nodule of about 1 cm in diameter. The lesion was hypoechoic in diagnostic sonography suggesting a fibromatous tumour, which was removed surgically. Histologic investigations confirmed the diagnosis of cutaneous angioleiomyoma. The occurrence of this benign tumour on the heel is quite uncommon but obvious a possible cause for heel pain. During follow-up, no recurrence was observed.
