Pleomorphic fibroma is a benign fibrous tumour characterised by cytological atypia. It typically presents as polypoid or dome-shaped mass on the trunk or extremities. Histopathologically, it is characterised by pleomorphic, hyperchromatic cells or giant multinucleated cells embedded in a collagenous stroma in the dermis. Herein, we describe a 40-year-old man who had a polypoid nodule on the right ala of the nose which had been present for 20 years. Histopathological features were consistent with those of pleomorphic fibroma.
