† Various dermatologic conditions are characterized by prominent myxomatous or mucinous changes. Among these, cutaneous myxoid cysts, papular mucinosis, cutaneous focal mucinosis, localized myxedema, and ganglions are more commonly observed, whereas true myxomas are rare. A case of subungual myxoma accompanied by partial destruction of the underlying phalanx is reported.
