- Nodular fasciitis was first described as pseudosarcomatous fibromatosis by Konwaler et al.1) In 1955 and is a benign reactive disease that can be mistaken for malignant tumors such as sarcoma due to its rapid tumor size growth and histological similarity. The most common location is usually the upper limb, especially the forearm, followed by the trunk and head and neck. Among them, the occurrence in the head and neck area is rare in adults. We present one case of NF occurred in the vocal cords. It should be remembered that nodular fasciitis occurred in vocal cords can cause airway obstruction due to its rapid increase in size and similarity with malignant tumors, and it is important to correctly diagnose nodular fasciitis to avoid unnecessary additional surgery and treatment. Therefore we report this case with a review of literature.
