  • Fibrous histiocytoma is the soft tissue tumor of histiocytic origin that have a variety of histological patterns. Although cases of malignant fibrous histiocytoma in the head and neck have been reported increasing frequency in recent years, they are rare conditions. We reporeted a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the trachea in which the Patient had been given laryngomicrosurgical biopsy for subglottic mass. Prognosis of malignant fibrous histiocytoma, the use of radiation as primary treatment, and its role in the development of secondary primary tumors in the head and neck region are reviewed.

  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of the spermatic cord represents an uncommon location for the most common soft tissue tumor in adults. MFH of the spermatic cord is extremely rare. No case report has been described in the Korean literature. We report a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma, myxoid type, arising from left spermatic cord. A 77-year-old male presented with a painless left upper scrotal mass for 5 months. Simple mass excision was performed for a diagnosis. Grossly, the mass closely contacted with the left spermatic cord. Since a myxoid type of malignant fibrous histiocytoma was diagnosed from histopathological findings, left radical orchiectomy with high ligation of the spermatic cord was performed additionally. There were no evidence of local recurrence or metastasis at 6 months after surgery.

  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of late adult life. The tumor occurs principally in one of the extremities or in the abdominal cavity or retroperitoneum, but very rarely in the heart. We report a case of M.F.H. that arose from the posterior wall of the left atrium. A 50 years old woman was presented with signs and symptoms of severe congestive heart failure. On 2-D echocardiographic exam, a huge mass was found in the left atrium. The mass was excised under open heart surgery. Histologic examination revealed that the tumor was actually a malignant fibrous histiocytoma.

  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of late adult life, but it is rare in the pleura. We recently experienced a case of cytology of malignant fibrous histiocytoma in plural fluid. The smear revealed histiocytic malignant cells, spindle malignant cells and inflammatory cells. The histiocytic cells showed abundant, pale cytoplasm and ovoid, irregular eccentrically-placed nuclei. The spindle cells showed elongated nuclei. Intercellular collagen was also present.

  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma(MFH) is relatively rare in the oro-maxillofacial region, particularly in the oral cavity. MFH usually arise in the extremities, the thigh being the most common site. The incidence of malignant fibrous histiocytoma in bones is rather low compared with that in soft tissues. MFH is predominant in the 40s and 50s. Histologically, the lesion are said to show high cellularity with fibrous stroma, cellular and nuclear pleomorphism, an admixture of fibroblast-like spindle cells which tend to be arranged in whorls or cartwheel or storiform patterns, rounded mononuclear cells and multinucleated giant cells. The cells frequently have abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm which has a foamy or vesicular appearance. Treatment consists of varying combinations of radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgery. We have observed a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma occured in the right maxilla of 32-year-old woman.

  • At OPD follow-up in December 1998, chest x-ray of a 42-year-old female showed a solit ary pulmonary nodule at a superior basal segment in the right lower lobe. After percut aneous transthoracic needle aspiration failure, wedge resection of the superior basal segment of lower lobe in right lung was performed for diagnosis and therapy. Three years ago, she had received surgery to remove a mass in the left buttock. The mass was pathologically diagnosed as malignant fibrous histiocytoma. She subsequently received 4500 rad radiotherapy for 35 days. Pathology confirmed metastatic malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the lung.

  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma(MFH) is the malignant part of mesenchymal cell-originated tumor, which is supposed that the tumor is presented various histologic features consisted of fibrosarcomatic and histiocytic portions. When the tumor is arisen in the head and neck region, the most affected sites are the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, and secondly the maxillary alveolar bone is occasionally influenced. Therefore, MFH can readily involve the adjacent alveolar bone. The treatment of MFH in the head and neck is various, that is, the involved sites and the differentiation of tumor must be considered when the tumor is treated. The treatment protocols are subjected to general ones of soft tissue sarcoma, and simple or combination therapy is used in the surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. So, we report a clinical case of chemotherapy involving intraarterial chemotherapy, and surgery of malignant fibrous histiocytoma(MFH) in the maxilla, with review of the literature.

  • Malignant fibrous histiocytoma, a type of sarcoma, is a malignant neoplasm with uncertain origin that arises in both the soft tissues and the bone. The occurrence of primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the pleura is extremely rare. We report a case of a 65-year-old Korean man who is being diagnosed with primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the pleura.

  • Purpose: Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is mainly a soft tissue sarcoma containing fibroblast-like cells and histiocytic cells. MFH in bone accounts for 5% of all malignant bone tumors. MFH of the maxilla is extremely rare and difficult to diagnose due to its scarcity. Treatment mainstay is a complete surgical excision. Radiation therapy is also available when surgery alone is incomplete. Prognosis is not clear but can be devastating. Authors report one case of MFH developed in the maxilla. Methods: A 24-year-old man firstly diagnosed as fibrous dysplasia based on CT findings. Considering facial contour, partial excision was done. But pathology report confirmed malignant fibrous histiocytoma and secondary wide excision was done including zygoma and grossly all affected area. After surgery, radiation therapy was continued. Results: There are no evidence of tumor recurrence after clinical and radiological treatment. Conclusion: MFH of maxilla is very rare and this can leads to misdiagnosis in many clinicians. Surgeon should differentiate this disease from fibrous dysplasia and pathology and MRI are accurate methods for diagnosis of MFH.

  • A malignant fibrous histiocytoma is a malignant soft tissue neoplasm that occurs frequently in the metaphyseal ends of the long bones of adults. The lung is a common site for metastasis but it is a rare site for a primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma. Here we report a case of a primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the lung. The patient was a 53-year-old man who presented with a moderate amount of a left pleural effusion and an illdefined mass in the left lower lobe on a chest radiograph and a local invasion to the left 10th and 11th rib on chest CT. Under the strong suspicion of lung cancer with a pleural invasion, a serial diagnostic thoracentesis was performed. The cytologic examination of the pleural effusion revealed no malignant cells. Consequently, a thoracoscopic pleural biopsy was performed. The histological examination revealed slender spindle cells and scattered epitheloid cells arranged in a vague storiform or a whirling pattern. Immunohistochemicaily, the tumor cells tested positive for vimentin and negative for cytokeratin, desmin, CD 34 and PAS. These features were consistent with a malignant fibrous histiocytoma. This case is an unusual addition to the small number of published reports on a primary malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the lung.
