Abstract

Rosai-Dorfman disease is a rare clinical disorder which may present in many forms. While classically a disease of lymph nodes, soft tissue involvement is fairly common. Soft tissue involvement can occur without any lymphatic or systemic involvement, and may be difficult to diagnose. We describe a patient presenting with multiple soft tissue masses which on biopsy proved to be isolated cutaneous Rosai-Dorfman disease. MR imaging showed two well-defined nonspecific superficial masses that enhanced intensely. Review of the literature suggests that when this disease presents in soft tissue, multiple foci of involvement may be common. Although rare, Rosai-Dorfman disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with multiple soft tissue masses.
