Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts: a case report and review.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Naval Medical Center, San Diego, CA, USA.


Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts is a recently described, rare but morphologically distinctive tumor of soft tissue, including subcutaneous soft tissue. We report a case of ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts which occurred in the subcutaneous tissue of a 68-year-old male, and review the clinical, histologic, and immunohistologic features of this tumor. Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts tends to occur in the subcutaneous tissue and have been reported from the head and neck, upper and lower extremities, and trunk. Immunohistologic studies have supported a neural origin. While considered benign, local recurrence after excision is common and these tumors should be excised with clear margins to prevent recurrence.
