Of the many benign mimickers of soft tissue sarcoma, proliferative fasciitis is a rare entity which is a diagnostic challenge for pathologist. Recognition of this pseudo sarcoma is very essential as it aids in the appropriate management of the same. Other members of the pseudo sarcoma family are proliferative myositis, nodular fasciitis, inflammatory pseudotumor and proliferative peribursitis. We present 3 cases of proliferative fasciitis which was reported in our hospital in the last 10 years, between 2007 and 2017.

Keywords: Pseudosarcoma, Proliferative fasciitis, Rare soft tissue pseudo sarcoma.
