Epithelioid sarcoma is an uncommon soft tissue malignancy with a known propensity for recurrence as well as metastasis. We report epithelioid sarcoma in 50 year old male with a recurrent ulcerative nodule over the right ankle since five months, initially misdiagnosed as malignant fibrous histiocytoma. The article aims at assessing the key cytological features of epithelioid sarcoma and their reliability in the diagnosis of the lesion. Also described are its histopathological and immunohistochemical features.
