Nodular fasciitis (NF) is a relatively common soft tissue lesion and represents a rapidly growing benign reactive process. Their cause is unknown. Less than 20% occur in children. Lesions in the head and neck region develop more frequently in children than in adults. NF has been reported at various atypical sites. We report a case of nodular fasciitis at the base of the penis in a 4-year-old boy. The nodule was excised with a narrow margin. This is the first reported case of nodular fasciitis at this unusual site.
