Abstract

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare, slow growing fibro histiocytic neoplasm with intermediate to low grade malignancy. It is locally invasive tumor but rarely metastasis with high rate of recurrence. It commonly occurs on the trunk, proximal extremities. We report a rare case of a 58 year old male who presented with very huge mass over anterior chest wall. Wide local surgical resection with surrounding surgical margins was performed. Histopathological examination along with immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis of DFSP. We present this case due to its rarity and its unusual gross appearance.


Keywords: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, fibrohistiocytic, anterior chest wall.
