Abstract
Introduction: Calcifying fibrous tumor (CFT) is a rare, benign soft tissue tumor of unknown etiology. Previously reported in the subcutaneous and deep tissues of the extremities and trunk, sporadic accounts of intra-abdominal CFTs associated with the peritoneum, mesentery and bowel have recently arose.
Case Report: We present a previously unreported entity of a free-floating intra-abdominal presentation of CFT. We discuss its classical histological and immunohistochemical findings, possible differential diagnoses, and its implications on clinical management.
Conclusion: Calcifying fibrous tumor (CFT) should be considered as a possible differential diagnosis of free-floating peritoneal masses

Keywords: Calcifying fibrous pseudotumor, Free floating, Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, Peritoneal loose body
