Angiofibroma of soft tissue is a benign, well defined, fibroblastic neoplasm incriminating soft tissues of extremities. Arising in concurrence with joints or fibrotendinous structures, tumefaction is comprised of uniform, spindle shaped cells intermingled within a variably myxoid and collagenous stroma imbued with a network of thin walled, branching vascular articulations. Cytogenetically, neoplasm delineates NCOA2 genetic rearrangements.

Angiofibroma of soft tissue commonly appears within middle aged adults and demonstrates a wide age of disease emergence ranging from 6 years to 68 years. A mild female preponderance is encountered.

Typically, angiofibroma of soft tissue is confined to lower extremities although sites involving or adjacent to large joints as knee joint may be incriminated. Besides, locales such as dorsal region, abdominal wall, pelvic cavity or breast may be infrequently incriminated [1,2].
