  • Purpose: Fewer than 100 cases of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma have been reported in the literature since this entity was initially described by Keasbey in 1953 who called it calcifying juvenile aponeurotic fibroma. The tumor is a slowly growing, painless mass. In most cases the mass is poorly circumscribed and causes neither discomfort nor limitation of movement. Most lesions occur in children, with a peak incidence ages of 8-14 years. There is no evidence of any increased familial prevalence. Predilection sites are palm, finger, toe, but it also occurs in the wrist, forearm, elbow, upper arm, neck, abdominal wall, lumbar paravertebral area, leg and ankle. We herein describe a rare case of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma occurring on the chin with review of the literature. Methods: A 14-year-old male had painless, slowly growing mass(${\phi}2.5cm$) on a chin for a year. The tumor was excised elliptically under local anesthesia and the excisional site was repaired directly. Due pathological examination was processed. Results: Histological examination revealed an illdefined fibrous growth that extends with multiple processes into the surrounding tissue with centrally located foci of calcification. The tumor is composed of short spindled plump fibroblasts with round or ovoid nuclei separated by collagenous stroma, showing vaguely palisading pattern. Diagnosis of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma was conferred. Postoperatively, the patient did well, and the lesion had not recurred. Conclusion: Fewer than 100 cases of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma have been reported in the literature. The most common occurring sites are palm, finger & toe, but it has been reported in the wrist, forearm, elbow, upper arm, neck, abdominal wall, lumbar paravertebral area, leg and ankle. Two cases of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma occurring on the neck have been reported in the literature. To the authors knowledge, our case of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma occurring on the chin is the first to be reported.

  • This is a case report of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma occurred in the right pterygopalatine fossa & ramus area accompanied by adenoid cystic carcinoma of the right sublingual gland of a 44-year-old female. Calcifying aponeurotic fibroma is benign tumor, but it is characterized by poorly marginated, infiltrated growth pattern and a stubborn tendency to local recurrence, but there is no record of malignant transformation or metastasis, and surgical management should be conservative(excision and reexcision). Most cases been reported at the hands and feet, but no reported case occuring in the head region is found in the literature. Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a slow-growing infiltrative tumor with high recurrence rate, and it's treatment requires radical excisin and radiotherapy. Wide surgical excision of tumor, RND and partial resection of mandible were done. And then, immediate mandibular reconstruction was performed by means of reimplantaion technique after autoclaving of the resected bone.

  • Calcifying aponeurotic fibroma is a rare benign soft tissue tumor that usually involves distal extremities in children and adolescents, especially the hands and feet. We report a case of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma arising in a 14-year-old boy who complained of right thumb mass. Surgical excision was performed. The resected specimen showed a $2.0{\times}1.5cm$ grayish white, fibrotic tissue. Histologic examination showed proliferation of fibroblastic cells with infiltrative growth pattern. Foci of calcification and chondroid differentiation were present.

  • Calcifying aponeurotic fibroma (CAF) is an uncommon benign soft-tissue fibroblastic tumor with characteristic histological features. It mainly occurs in the distal part of the extremities, such as the hands and feet, in children and adolescents. Males are twice as commonly affected as females. CAF exhibits local invasiveness, and hence, its recurrence rate is also high. Therefore, complete surgical excision is both diagnostic and therapeutic. The occurrence of CAF in the maxillofacial region, especially the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), is very rare, and this necessitates its differentiation from other TMJ neoplasms. The differential diagnosis of CAF requires microscopic examination. Herein, we report a rare case of CAF located at the left mandibular condyle, which was confirmed by histopathological analysis.

  • Calcifying aponeurotic fibroma (CAF) is an uncommon benign tumor and a locally aggressive fibroblastic lesion. It commonly affects the palmar side of the hand and fingers, and the soles of the feet. The typical clinical manifestations are known as a poorly circumscribed, slow-growing, and asymptomatic firm mass. Most CAFs usually reveal low to intermediate or isointensity on T1-weighted images, and strong heterogeneous enhancement. However, various signal intensities on T2-weighted images have been reported depending on the degree of hypocellularity or the amount of calcification or collagen within the tumor. This report provides the radiographic and MRI finding of CAF arising in uncommon site, the knee region, of a 19-year-old male who presented with a painful and palpable mass.

  • Calcifying aponeurotic fibroma is a benign, aggressive fibrous tumor seen in childhood or adolescence that most commonly affects the palm. We report our experience in treating calcifying aponeurotic fibroma in the hand of fifteen-year-old boy. He was presented with a recurrent mass in hypothenar area of his left hand. He had a history of local excision of the mass 7 years ago in local clinic. The palpable mass was hard, tender and movable. The simple X-ray revealed multifocally scattered microcalcifications in the mass. The excised mass showed the features of dense fibrotic soft tissue tumor with multiple small whitish calcifications. The microscopic sections showed a lobulated and a poorly circumscribed proliferation of dense fibrous tissue, containing islands of metaplastic chondroid differentiation with prominent calcification. The recommended treatment of this lesion is wide excision allowing for sparing of functional or vital structures, but high recurrence rate as this case has been reported to be more than 50 percent.
