Epithelioid sarcoma, first described by Enzinger in 1970, is a rare, slow-growing, malignant, soft-tissue sarcoma typically presenting as a subcutaneous or deep dermal mass in distal portions of the extremities of adolescents and young adults. It is associated with a high incidence of local recurrence and metastasis. Due to the tumor's infrequent occurrence and histological similarities with other disease processes, diagnosing epithelioid sarcoma has become extremely difficult. We report a rare case of epithelioid sarcoma occurring as a cauliflower-like growth between the index finger and middle finger of the left hand in a 30-year-old female with pathological challenges in the diagnosis.
