Tumefactive fibroinflammatory lesion (TFIL) is a rare idiopathic, histologically benign appearing, tumour-forming fibrosclerosing lesion that clinically simulates a malignant neoplasm. There have been limited case reports of TFIL in foreign literature but none from Iran. Here, the authors report a case of TFIL in a 73-year-old Iranian man.
