Fibroma of tendon sheath (FTS) a rare, solid, benign tumor is commonly found in upper extremity particularly the hands. FTS of the finger is further rare and unusual variety which poses significant preoperative diagnostic challenge. We herein report a case of FTS of middle phalynx of the middle finger of the right hand in a young male who was no predisposing factor of its occurrence. We also reviewed the available English literature and recommend that FTS should be included in the differential diagnosis of the soft tissue tumors of the fingers and hand.
