Abstract

Calcifying fibrous tumors (CFTs) are benign soft tissue masses that can occur at many sites. This case report outlines the diagnostic workup for this rare, fast-growing, solitary mass in an otherwise healthy 8 year old patient. We also describe the radiographic and pathological characteristics unique to this lesion.
