IntroductionIntramuscular myxoma is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor. Myxomas most commonly occur in the heart. They may occur less frequently in aponeurotic tissues, bone, genitourinary tract, subcutaneous tissue and skin.

Case presentationThe case described here is a 44-year-old Turkish woman who presented with the complaint of a swelling in her right shoulder. A preoperative magnetic resonance imaging revealed a lobular contoured mass lesion in her deltoid muscle. The mass was marginally excised and pathology revealed intramuscular myxoma.

ConclusionIntramuscular myxoma of the deltoid muscle is a very rare benign tumor. In the differential diagnosis, reactive lesions, myxoid nodular fasciitis and low -grade myxoid sarcomas should be kept in mind, upon which the treatment should be planned.
