Fibrosarcomatous variant of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans on the right cheek: A case report

A 52-year-old man presented with a subcutaneous mass on his right cheek. The tumor was resected. Histopathological examination of the resected tissue revealed fibrosarcomatous deromatofibrosarcoma protuberans (FS-DFSP). Since the resection resulted in a large skin defect, his cheek was reconstructed using a deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flap (DIEP). As the pathological findings showed positivity for tumor cells at the excised end, radiation therapy was applied to his right cheek. FS-DFSPs are found in about 10% of all DFSP cases, and are more malignant than other types of DFSP. Because there is a risk of local recurrence or distant metastasis, the patient should undergo close, long-term observation. doi:10.11482/KMJ-E41(1)7 (Accepted on May 8, 2015)
