FIRST PARAGRAPH: Elastofibroma is an ill-defined fibroelastic tumor-like condition that affects the neck and upper shoulders. There is a genetic predisposition, with multifocality suggesting an enzymatic defect that results from abnormal elastogenesis. Patients usually present in the 60- to 70-year range, with females affected much more often than males (5:1). Although perhaps due to reporting bias, there is an increased incidence in Japanese patients.
