Abstract

© 2017 National Medical AssociationElastofibroma dorsi is a reactive pseudotumor of connective tissue, typically located in the infrascapular region. Awareness of this benign entity is crucial for radiologists, as well as clinicians, to avoid misdiagnosis and potential patient harm. In this report, we present clinical and imaging findings of an elastofibroma dorsi after a thoracotomy procedure.
