Two cases of sclerotic fibromas directly related to the tendon sheath are presented. Fibroma in these 2 cases consisted of hypocellular, homogeneous collagen bundles that were closely related to the subjacent tendon sheath, and were described by the term 'sclerotic fibroma of tendon sheath'. It is possible that the sclerotic fibroma may arise from fibroma of tendon sheath and that common pathomechanisms exist between these two types of fibroma.
