Nodular fasciitis (NF) is a benign, self-limiting condition that is characterized by myofibroblast/fibroblast proliferation. It is commonly seen at the back, trunk, and upper limbs (the volar aspect of the forearm). Patients who are diagnosed with this condition typically present with a history of rapidly enlarging subcutaneous mass over several weeks or months. NF often mimics a malignant process due to rapid growth clinically, high mitotic activity and cellularity, and nonspecific cytomorphologic findings which make the diagnosis pretty challenging. In this paper, we described a case of NF of the left posterior chest wall who underwent wide local excision followed by chest wall reconstruction using a prolene mesh.
