Nodular fasciitis is an unusual benign tumor which is composed of myofibroblast. Typical histologic findings include haphazardly arranged pleomorphic arranged spindle cells in a myxoid stroma. These lesions may easily be misinterpreted as malignancy clinically and histologically because it presents as a rapidly growing mass from subcutaneous or deep fascia. These lesions are usually located over upper extremity and rarely in the head and neck region. It's important to emphasize the need of clinical suspicion and accurate histopathology of this rare benign lesion usually misdiagnosed as a malignacy to avoid unnecessary and inappropriate aggressive wide resection, when encountering subcutaneous nodules of the face and neck region. In this article, we report a rare case of Nodular fasciitis on the Nose and some reviews of the literature.
