Calcifying aponeurotic fibroma is a very rare benign soft tissue tumor with predilection for the fingers and palms of children and adolescents. We describe an unusual case of a calcifying aponeurotic fibroma in old age that circumferentially involved the dorsal and palmar side of the third metacarpal head.We performed a wide excision using two incisions, resulting in satisfactory clinical result. A calcifying aponeurotic fibroma must be considered in the differential diagnosis of a calcifying soft tissue lesion occuring in the hand of old age.
