Myxofibrosarcoma or myxoid malignant fibrous histiocytoma is one of the most common sarcomas of the limb. It is usually treated multimodally. Most frequent sites of metastasis are the bone, lung and lymph nodes. The present paper is a case report of a 65-year-old male with myxofibrosarcoma of the fibularis longus muscle, for which he first underwent surgery - tumor resection with appropriate margins. The tumor was staged pT2b cN0 cM0. Postoperative PET-CT revealed metabolically inactive pulmonary nodules. Two months after surgery, he underwent adjuvant radiotherapy, a total dose of 60 Gy and 6 courses of chemotherapy (doxorubicin and ifosfamide). Pulmonary nodules have been stationary on all subsequent imagistic studies. He is free of recurrence on long-term follow-up.

been completed, under states of inward attention. Numerous studies have tested attentional theories by testing subjects under different anxiety conditions (Beilock et al., 2010, 2011; Cooke et al., 2010 ; Pijpers et al., 2005 ; Tanaka and Sekiya, 2010 ; Williams et al., 2002 ). Within a sports setting, researchers have looked for any differences in movement behaviour or performance when a pressure stimulus is added. One study compared arm kinematics in table tennis players to test PET using low and high working memory and anxiety conditions ( Williams et al

abnormalities in ET ( Britton et al., 1994; Deuschl et al., 2000; Koster et al., 2002; Stolze et al., 2001 ). Functional imaging studies (PET, fMRI) revealed hyperactivation of cerebellar hemispheres and its connections with the brainstem ( Colebatch et al., 1990; Louis., 2004 ). Dupuis et al. (1989) reported remission of ET after the ipsilateral cerebellar stroke. Suppression of ET after ablation or deep brain stimulation performed on the thalamic ventralis intermedius nucleus, which receives neuronal input from the cerebellum, is another argument for the
