Elastofibroma dorsi is a rare soft-tissue tumor of the chest wall and most commonly presents as a nontender mass adjacent to the inferior angle of the scapula. Its findings on CT and MRI generally lead to the diagnosis. We report a case of a 55-year-old woman with elastofibroma dorsi presenting with painless back mass. On sonography, it appeared as an ill-defined heterogeneous echogenic mass with internal streaky echostructures in bilateral subscapular regions. Excisional biopsy of the tumor was done and the tumor was confirmed as a bilateral elastofibroma dorsi by histopathologic examination.
