Pseudosarcomatous lesions are reactive proliferative lesions of the soft tissue, that are likely to be misdiagnosed as malignant, based on clinical and histological features. The most common lesions are nodular fasciitis, proliferative fasciitis, proliferative myositis and myositis ossificans. These rapidly growing soft-tissue lesions can represent a variety of diagnoses involving radically different treatment modalities. Accurate diagnosis is important to avoid unnecessary and often mutilating surgery. We report two cases to illustrate the importance of correct identification of these lesions by fine needle aspiration cytology.
