Proliferative Fasciitis SOA Textbook

Authors Scott D. Weiner, MD Thomas Scharschmidt, MD Akron, OH Proliferative fasciitis (PF) is a condition characterized by subcutaneous fascial thickenings that present as a firm, movable subcutaneous nodule. It is considered the subcutaneous and fascial equivalent of proliferative myositis, which is myositis ossificans without the ossification. It is a benign self-limited pseudosarcomatous process that is adequately treated with local excision alone when symptomatic. Because of the self-limiting nature of the condition, when recognized and diagnosed surgical intervention can often be avoided.
