We report a case of calcifying aponeurotic fibroma (CAF), a rare benign soft-tissue tumor, arising in the left hip of a 6-year-old girl. Aspiration cytology showed benign-appearing spindle cells, cells with rich cytoplasm and round to oval nuclei including small nucleoli (chondroid cells), multinucleated giant cells, and calcified particles. These cytological findings correspond to histological CAF features. Cytological observation is thus useful in diagnosing CAF.
