Plexiform fibrohistiocytic tumor is a rare soft-tissue tumor with intermediate malignancy. It has a predilection for girls and young women. A 6-year-old girl presented with an indolent nodule in the right axilla first noticed six months earlier. Clinical and histopathological criteria led to the diagnosis plexiform fibrohistiocytic tumor. As relapses may occur and some cases of metastasis have been reported, lesions should be excised. Long-term follow-up is required to promptly identify any local recurrence as well as nodal and pulmonary metastases.
