Abstract

Nonossifying fibromas are not uncommon, but those described in the rib are unique. We report the case of a 15-year-old patient with symptoms of chest wall pain for 5 days who underwent a video-assisted thoracoscopic rib resection for a 2.5-cm rib mass. Unexpectedly, pathological results revealed a nonossifying fibroma of the rib. The results showed excellent cosmesis and new bone formation because of the preservation of the overlying periosteum.
