CASE REPORT

Abstract

 This case report describes an ossifying tumor in the left musculus erector spinae in a 32-year-old man. Radiologically it showed irregular lamellar bone formation in the periphery, demonstrating as juxtacortical and macroscopically sarcoma-like features. Histologic it was diagnosed as an ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts (OFTSP). The CT features of this tumor have never previously been reported. This is the first time pulmonary metastases, malignant pleural effusion, and death of the patient directly related with an OFTSP have been described.

Key words Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts
