Clear cell sarcoma is a rare malignant neoplasm usually presenting as soft tissue mass in foot of young adult. Ultrastructural studies reveal neuroectodermal origin with melanocytic differentiation. Thus it is considered as malignant melanoma of soft parts. Though the prognosis is apparently better as compared to the conventional melanoma, local recurrences and metastases are frequently seen. Large tumor size and extent of necrosis are factors for poor prognosis. A case of clear cell sarcoma with classical presentation is reported.
