The authors describe the case of a non-osteogenic fibroma on the proximal tibia. Even if it seemed characteristic at a radiographic control, it presented a painful symptomatology and an increasing fever, atypical features of the normal evolution of the lesion. The continuous pain obliged the authors to intervene surgically, solution with brought to the disappearance of the painful symptoms. Even if the majority of the authors agree on considering the non-osteogenic fibroma a casual event and without pathological significance, the lack of univocity regarding its exact origin and the strange behavior in its evolution, justify the surgical intervention.
