Nodular fasciitis is a benign proliferation of fibroblasts and myofibroblasts most commonly found in the soft tissues of the upper extremities and the trunk of young to middle-aged adults. Nodular fasciitis is infrequently encountered in the breast and in the elderly. We report a case of a 69-year-old woman presenting with a palpable breast mass with imaging features that mimicked malignancy. Knowledge of this entity is important to allow proper radiological and pathologic concordance and patient management.
