Superficial CD34-positive fibroblastic tumor is a low-grade mesenchymal neoplasm of superficial soft tissues characterized by fascicles of spindle to epithelioid cells displaying nuclear pleomorphism and strong diffuse CD34 immunoreactivity. The intraoperative imprint cytology preparations (ICP) of a superficial CD34-positive fibroblastic tumor from a 50-year-old female are described. To the best of our knowledge, there is no report of the cytologic findings of superficial CD34-positive fibroblastic tumor in the English medical literature. The ICP, differential diagnosis, tissue correlation, and ancillary studies of this fascinating entity are discussed. Diagn. Cytopathol. 2016;44:926-930. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
