PESAPANE, Filippo et al. Two friends with eroded nodules on the ears: atypical fibroxanthoma case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2015, vol.90, n.4, pp.577-579. ISSN 1806-4841.  https://doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20153313.

Atypical fibroxanthoma is an uncommon mesenchymal tumor that manifests clinically as a reddish papule or nodule in sun-exposed areas of the body. The clinical presentation is not specific and histology and immunohistochemistry are both necessary for a correct diagnosis. Surgery is the gold standard of therapy. Recurrence and metastasis should be excluded with a follow-up at 6 months, since this tumor should nowadays be considered a medium-grade neoplasm, rather than low-grade as previously believed. We report the case of two friends who came to our hospital during the same period, complaining of very similar lesions. After biopsy and immunohistochemical examination, a diagnosis of atypical fibroxanthoma in both cases was formulated.
