Abstract

Elastofibroma is an uncommon soft tissue lesion that most often presents as a mass in the lower scapular region of elderly female subjects. The authors report an elastofibroma arising in the right forefoot of a 63-year-old woman. Pain over the plantar aspect of the head of the third metatarsal preceded the formation of a tender mass. Although rare, elastofibroma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of painful conditions and tumors of the forefoot.
