Elastofibroma dorsi (ED) is a benign connective tissue tumor, generally located in the subscapularis region. Generally asymptomatic, it is often an occasional finding on imaging; however, it can generate functional limitations and pains. Surgical treatment is only recommended in symptomatic cases. We present the case of a 55-year-old woman who came to our observation at the San Giovanni di Dio Hospital in Frattamaggiore, for a mass located at the lower pole of the right shoulder blade, compatible, for clinical and radiological characteristics, with an ED.


KEY WORDS: Neoplasms, connective tissue; Soft tissue neoplasm; Scapula
