Abstract

Elastofibroma is a benign lesion occurring almost exclusively in the chest wall, parascapular region being the most frequent site. Rare lesions have been reported in other anatomic locations, but there are no reports about the co-existence of an elastofibroma with a malignant sarcoma. The purpose of the authors is to describe histologically and ultrastructurally the synchronous detection of an elastofibroma and a high grade leiomyosarcoma, speculating on eventual links between the two pathological states.
