Elastofibroma is an uncommon fibrous pseudotumor that usually occurs in the subscapular region of middle-aged and older adults. Since its seminal description, cases of elastofibroma or elastofibroma-like proliferations have been identified at several anatomic locations, including the foot, hand, thigh, olecranon, gastrointestinal tract, trachea, dorsal spine and eye. Involvement of the oral cavity is rare, with only four cases reported to date. Herein, we report a case of elastofibromatous change in the soft palate of a 55-year-old man and review the literature regarding pathogenesis, clinicopathologic features, differential diagnosis and management.
