    Abstract

    Three cases of elastofibroma are described and the literature is reviewed. It is suggested that they are non-neoplastic lesions resulting from trauma. Their staining reactions and the response of the elastic type fibres to enzyme digestion suggest that these fibres are either true elastin or very closely related to it.
