Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans occuring in a child (Journal article)

Peschos, D./ Dallas, P./ Doulis, A./ Agnantis, N./ Vougiouklakis, T.


Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) usually occurs in adults, however it can also occur in infancy and childhood. Diagnosis of DFSP in children is quite difficult given the rarity of the tumor and its variegated appearance. The behavior of this neoplasm is of borderline or intermediate malignancy with a high rate of recurrence but limited metastatic potential. We present the case of an eleven-year old boy who presented with a slightly raised, not tender lesion on his right shoulder. It had appeared two years before as a red-brown plaque and since then it had gradually grown to a nodule. An excisional biopsy was performed, and the diagnosis of DFSP was made based on the histological and immunohistochemical findings.
