Elastofibroma Dorsi (EFD) is a rare pseudo-tumor characterized by the overgrowth of elastic fibers mixed to adipose and connective tissues typically growing in the subscapular region. This can be bilateral but only rarely synchronous affecting different anatomical sites at the same time. Hereby we present a case of a 42-year-old male patient found with three different metachronous elastofibromas: bilateral EFD and a further third localization by the right elbow. The two EFs in the subscapular region were resected. After surgery pain reoccurred on the right side. This required the implantation of a spinal electro-stimulator. The elbow lesion was not excised as it was asymptomatic.

Abstract

Elastofibroma Dorsi (EFD) is a rare pseudo-tumor characterized by the overgrowth of elastic fibers mixed to adipose and connective tissues typically growing in the subscapular region. This can be bilateral but only rarely synchronous affecting different anatomical sites at the same time. Hereby we present a case of a 42-year-old male patient found with three different metachronous elastofibromas: bilateral EFD and a further third localization by the right elbow. The two EFs in the subscapular region were resected. After surgery pain reoccurred on the right side. This required the implantation of a spinal electro-stimulator. The elbow lesion was not excised as it was asymptomatic.
