We describe a rare case of plexiform malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour (MPNST) of infancy and childhood in a 3.5-year-old girl. The tumour was located in the proximal phalanx of the left index finger. After initial excisions and a ray amputation, exarticulation of the third and fourth rays was required.
