Juvenile Xanthogranuloma is a non-langerhans cell histiocytosis characterized by yellowish cutaneous nodules that usually appear in early infancy and childhood. Intramuscular variant is a rare form, with only eight reported cases, and none reported in ala of nose. Sheets of histiocytes, few touton giant cells and infiltrative borders makes it susceptible to misdiagnosis as childhood sarcomas or lymphoproliferative disorders. Awareness of the lesion aided by immunohistochemistry helps in reaching the proper diagnosis.
