Purpose : Tumors of the foot and ankle are uncommon compared with those arising in the other sites, and the malignant tumors are rare. We analyzed the data of patients who have been diagnosed as having a tumor of the foot and ankle.

Materials and Methods : Between 1989 and 1998, we treated 72 patients and analyzed on their clinical characteristics retrospectively.

Results : Fifty-three cases were benign. Included are 30 cases of soft tissue tumor and 23 cases of bone tumor. Malignant tumor was in 19 cases (26%), including 17 cases of soft tissue tumor, one cases of metastatic tumor. The most common benign tumor was fibroma in soft tissue and osteochondroma in bone. Malignant melanoma was the most common malignant tumor of the foot (7 cases). The predilection site for benign tumors was around toes while for the malignant tumor mostly arises in the heel. Among 19 malignant tumors, local recurrence developed in 3 cases and the distant metastasis occurred in 8 cases.

Conclusion : The ratio of malignant tumor and metastasis was high. Therefore, when we faced with a tumor of the foot and ankle, the histopathologic confirmation is essential through biopsy before the definite initial treatment.
