Abstract
Nodular fascitis is a benign fibroblastic tumour characterized by rapid growth and most of the time requires its differentiation from other tumorous lesions. Here is a case of 45 year old male who presented with a soft tissue swelling in the popliteal region. On FNAC, a differential diagnosis of proliferative myositis and proliferative fasciitis was given. Histopathological examination gave a diagnosis of nodular fascitis. Hence cytology helps to give a definite diagnosis and aid in the surgical management of soft tissue tumors.
