SIQUEIRA, Roberta Cardoso de et al. Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the extremity: a case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.5, pp.569-573. ISSN 0365-0596.

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma found in young adults. It is rarely confined exclusively to the skin and subcutis. In most cases it is only diagnosed after excision and analysis of the tumor. It is aggressive, presenting a high degree of local recurrence and metastasis. This article reports a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma on an extremity of a young adult patient.

Keywords : dermatofibroma; neoplasms; sarcoma.
