The unusual soft tissue tumor we have described may be the largest yet reported. The tumor was considered benign, and its histologic features were most consistent with fibromatosis arising in a region that had been previously traumatized. Although the patient is doing well, it is premature (2 years later) to conclude that the tumor will not recur.
