Nodular fasciitis is a benign fibroblastic tumour that does not commonly occur in the hand and generally does not exceed 5 cm in size. Given the characteristics of this entity, it demands a differential diagnosis with malignant tumours and infectious processes. We present an unusual case of nodular fasciitis in the palm of the hand, producing a lesion larger than any similar lesion reported previously in this location.
