Dermatol Sinica 16: 136-140, 1998

Nodular fasciitis was first described by Konwaler et al in 1955. Because of the infiltrative growth pattern, this disease was possibly misdiagnosed as sarcoma. We herein report a typical case of nodular fasciitis that presented with a tender subcutaneous nodule about 1 cm in diameter over the left forearm for 1 week. After surgical excision, no recurrence has been noted so far after follow-up for 4 months.
