This paper presents the youngest known patient with elastofibroma, a thirty-seven-year-old woman. The tumor is benign, slowly-growing and non-encapsulated and most often occurs at the inferior angle of the scapula. It should not be mistaken for a sarcomatous lesion. It will be diagnosed best if elastin stains are used. It may represent a degenerative process rather than a neoplasm.
