Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is a rare variety of soft tissue sarcoma of ectomesenchymal origin. These tumors present diagnostic difficulties in differentiating from other high-grade spindle sarcomas. This is a case of a 45-year-old lady who presented with pain and swelling in the groin for past 4 months, which on excision and histopathology revealed an MPNST in a neurofibroma.
