Seen as a nontender mass on the thoracic wall, elastofibroma dorsi is a benign connective tissue proliferation in elderly people. In this report, we describe a 39-year-old woman having bilateral mobile masses located on the inferior pole of the scapula. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed heterogenous masses deep in relation to the scapular tip on each sides. They were resected completely. On histological examination, they exhibited a mixture of intertwining collagen and elastic fibers. We believe that a surgeon should always consider elastofibroma dorsi when palpate a mobile mass under scapula even in the younger patients
