A case of nodular fasciitis is described. The lesion was located on the right cheek of a 20-year old girl. Histologically the lesion was characterized by an uncapsulated nodule within the dermis and the subcutaneous tissue; it consisted of bundles of spindle and stellate fibroblasts arranged in a loosely intercellular matrix and of proliferation of small capillaries at the edges of the nodule. Moreover problems of differential diagnosis due to the unusual site and unusual clinical aspect are discussed.
