Introduction: Ossifying fibromixoid tumor of soft parts (OFMT) is a rare soft tissue and bone tumor. In its classic form, is considered benign, nevertheless aggressive clinical behaviour tumors with a different cytoarchitectural features of a malignant variant, have been described.The classification contains “typical”, “atypical” and “malignant” variants. Methods: A CT ear scan without contrast enhancement was carried out (October 2015), with coronal, sagittal and 3D reconstructions. It was decided the removal of the neoformation with a simple dissection. Results: In this report, we present a case of a typical variant OFMT localized in the retroauricular perimastoid region, with mastoid bone cortex not involved. Conclusions: Considering the extreme rarity of this “enigmatic” tumor which displays an uncertain line of differentiation, renders the differential diagnosis a true challenge.
