A chest CT scan without intravenous contrast was then performed, demonstrating bilateral soft tissue masses characteristic of elastofibroma dorsi.
Elastofibroma dorsi is a benign slow growing connective tissue pseudotumor first described by Jarvi and Saxen in 1961.
Elastofibroma is an ill-defined fibroelastic tumor-like condition that affects the neck and upper shoulders.
Most elastofibromas are detected as slowly growing, deeply seated, firm masses between the shoulder blades and lower posterior neck.
is a benign tumor composed of elastic fibers and fibrous tissue that has a typical yellow or sometimes gray color.
These microscopic findings were found to be similar to extraabdominal fibromatosis, elastofibroma
dorsi or radiotherapy-induced changes.
dorsi (ED), ilk kez patoloji uzmanlari olan Jarvi ve Saxen tarafindan tanimlanmistir.
(2) It is called elastofibroma
dorsi when it occurs in the periscapular region.
Hobbs et al (31) found that most cases (10 of 13; 77%) of elastosis or elastofibroma
occurred in the colon.
The histologic picture corresponds to sheets of hypocellular dense collagen, with interspersed mature fat, small vessels, and entrapped nerve fibers; since it is not composed of fibrocartilage, it resembles more of a fibrolipoma, lipomatosis, scar, or elastofibroma
[sup] Primary soft tissue neoplasms of the chest wall include peripheral nerve tumors, lipomas, liposarcomas, hemangiomas, elastofibromas
, lymphomas, desmoid tumors, and malignant fibrous histiocytomas.
