Peripheral Primitive neuroectodermal tumor (pPNET) is very rare tumor in elderly age group. We report a case of 60 year old female who presented with right mid thigh swelling, diagnosed as pPNET by histopathological, immunohistochemistry and molecular methods. The case has been reported for its rarity and to highlight the importance of modern techniques in diagnosing unusual cases, which may have an impact on disease outcome
