In this article, a case of clear cell sarcoma of the flexor hallucis longus in a 42-year-old woman is presented. The patient had previously been treated for suspected bursitis of the big toe. After extensive investigation, Lisfranc amputation was performed in order to achieve tumor-free margins. No adjuvant therapy was administered. At 5-year follow-up, there was no evidence of tumor recurrence or metastatic disease. The patient was functional in a modified shoe without the need for prosthesis. Adv Orthop 2011;2(4):156–60.
