Calcified fibrous tumor (CFT) is a rare benign tumor of mesenchymal origin. Between 1988 and 2019, a total of 272 CFT cases were reported. CFTs can be seen in all anatomical regions with soft tissue. Histologically, mononuclear inflammatory infiltrates and the presence of psammomatous calcification in dense hyalinized collagen are characteristic features of the tumor. Currently, if the tumor is located in only one focus, surgical removal is recommended. Although CFT is a benign tumor, it may cause complications. Diagnosis is often difficult due to the confusion of tumor findings with many diseases. We present a patient with CFT, whose omental lesions were detected on abdominal computed tomography, and the diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination.
