Management of Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma of Thoracic Wall: A Case Report

We report management of a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) originated from thoracic wall. A 45 year old man with lump on chest wall was referred to our center. He was diagnosed as MFH histologically. We managed the case with wide optimal surgical resection to negative margin. Then adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy was administered. The patient is disease free since 3 years. MFH commonly arises in soft tissue of extremities and rarely in chest wall. We also reviewed the literature about clinicopathological features, diagnostic modalities and management of MFH. Multidisciplinary approach of surgical resection followed by chemo radiotherapy result in better outcome.
