Title:
Nodular fasciitis of the head and neck.
Authors:
Silva, Priyamal; Bruce, Iain A; Malik, Tass; Homer, Jarrod J; Banerjee, Saumitra S
Abstract:
Nodular fasciitis is an unusual benign reactive process affecting superficial and deep fascia. Its rapid growth, rich cellularity, high mitotic activity and poorly circumscribed nature result in it being easily misdiagnosed as a sarcomatous lesion. Three cases of nodular fasciitis presenting as neck lumps are reported. They were successfully treated with local excision, with no signs of recurrence following two years of follow up. This paper describes the clinical presentation and microscopic features of this rare benign lesion and it emphasizes the need for accurate histopathology and clinical suspicion, if inappropriate aggressive management is to be avoided.
