Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT) is a soft tissue tumor of uncertain lineage that most often arises in the extremities of adults. Imaging findings of this uncommon tumor are rare. We, herein, present a case of OFMT occurring in the left thigh of a 36-year-old male. Radiological examinations revealed a well-circumscribed subcutaneous mass with an incomplete shell of peripheral ossification, suggesting a benign condition. Following complete excision, the mass was histopathologically diagnosed as an OFMT. The patient demonstrated no evidence of local recurrence within 11 months of follow-up. We describe the clinicopathological and radiological features, and review the relevant literature.
