Abstract

Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT) presents as a small painless well-defined lobulated subcutaneous mass. It is a rare soft tissue tumor of uncertain histogenesis. Approximately 100 cases of OFMT have been reported so far in literature. Although the majority behaves in a benign fashion, very rare tumors with histologic and clinical evidence of malignancy have been reported. Criteria for malignancy in OFMT have been defined by few authors(6). Histologically, the nuclear grade and mitosis were used to assess the biological potential of the tumor (1). We have presented here with OFMT at a rare site, anterior abdominal wall.
