Abstract

PEREZ, Olga G.; RIGHETTI, Rodolfo; WOSCOFF, Alberto  and  AMANTE, Hugo. Case for diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.2, pp. 245-247. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000200021.

A 30-year-old woman developed a slowly progressive reddish-violet multinodular rubbery lesion, measuring 20 x 10 cm in diameter, on the upper outer quadrant of her right breast four years after the surgical excision of a dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) in the same area. The diagnosis of DFSP was confirmed histologically and by positive immunomarkers at immunohistochemistry. A complete excision was performed and after a 2-year follow-up no recurrence was observed. It should be emphasized that DFSP of the breast is a rare occurrence.

Keywords : Dermatofibrosarcoma; Fibrosarcoma; Recurrence.
