Myxoinflammatory Fibroblastic Sarcoma of the Face
The American Journal of Dermatopathology, 08/03/2012
Gómez Martín C et al. – A 48–year–old woman presented to the authors' clinic with a painless subcutaneous mass in the right temporal region. Excisional biopsy made the rare diagnosis of Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma (MIFS). Histologic examination showed the unique features that characterize this lesion: a myxoid component with a superimposed inflammatory infiltrate and the presence of distinctive, large, and bizarre Reed–Stemberg–like cells. A second wide tumor bed resection was performed, achieving clear margins. No adjuvant therapy was administered, and the patient is free of disease at 18 months postoperatively.
