Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT), a rare soft tissue tumor, is generally located in the extremities with a distinct morphology characterized by bland, small cells lying in a fibromyxoid stroma and a peripheral rim of the lamellar bone. These tumors mostly express Leu-7, neuron specific enolase in addition to S-100 and vimentin. Some tumors may have malignant cytological features with aggressive behavior but even in classical morphology, recurrence or metastasis can be detected. Thus, the outcome of the tumor remains a mystery and depends on the different results detected during the follow up. Herein, we report a case of OFMT regarding this entity in the differential diagnosis of subcutaneous masses.
