Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor of soft parts in an uncommon tumor with a benign behavior but with a tendency to relapse. We report a 76 years old female presenting with a growing mass located in the anterior portion of the neck that was excised. The pathological study disclosed an anaplastic thyroid cancer. The patient received chemotherapy and was lost from follow up. Nine years later, she presented with progressive dysphagia. A neck CT scan showed a mass in the left thyroid base that completely included the cervical esophagus. The patient was operated and the mass was excised. The pathological diagnosis disclosed an ossifying fibromyxoid tumor.
