Abstract

Elastofibroma dorsi is a rare, benign lesion arising from connective tissue and usually found at the angle of the scapula. Surgical resection is often indicated in the presence of an enlarging mass or when malignancy can not be excluded. Herein we report our most recent case of elastofibroma dorsi and our review of 6 cases from the past 16 years.
