Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is an extremely rare sarcoma. It is a malignant soft tissue tumor that arises in the muscles, commonly seen in the age group between 15 and 35 years of age with slight increased predilection in young women. Clinically, it presents as a painless, slow-growing lesion principally around the lower limb or limb–girdle with a propensity for recurrence and metastasis. Clinically, it can be confused with a hemangioma or arteriovenous malformations. We report a case of ASPS in a 36-year-old female with pain and swelling over the anterior aspect of the right thigh without any features of metastasis, who has been treated with excision of the symptomatic lesion followed by chemotherapy.
