The history of dermatofibrosarcomaprotuberans (DFSP) dates back to 1924 when Darier and Ferrand, in 1924, initially defined it as "progressive and recurring dermatofibroma".1 It originates from dermal and subdermal tissue of the skin and is locally aggressive soft tissue sarcoma.2 The annual incidence rate of DFSP is 4.1 persons per million person-years.
On the other hand, the face-to-face diagnoses consisted of pigmented basal cell carcinoma (4), intradermal nevus (6), seborrheic keratosis (4), benign melanocytic lesion (14), blue nevus (3), exogenous pigmentation atypical nevus (2), dermatofibroma (1), congenital nevus (1), solar lentigo (2), and melanoma (3).
As a treatment approach, it is very important to differentiate hamartomas that display a tumor-like growth from structures that form cervical masses such as sarcoma, lipoma, hemangioma, neurofibroma, dermatofibroma, leiomyoma, rhabdomyoma, chondroma, and teratoma (4).
Combined dermatofibroma: co-existence of two or more variant patterns in a single lesion.
Another disease in which FXIII-A has stood the test of time and is used in the diagnosis is dermatofibroma (DF) where the spindle-shaped cells are FXIII-A positive but negative for CD34, in contrast to dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) where the cells are negative for FXIII-A and CD34 positive [53, 54].
The term histoid derives by the histological finding of the dermal infiltrate composed by a predominance of spindle shaped cells or polygonal cells that may resemble a fibrohistiocytic tumor (dermatofibroma).
It was first described by Darier and Ferrand as a distinct cutaneous disease entity called progressive and recurring dermatofibroma in 1924.
It was first described by Darier and Ferrand in 1924 and was referred to as a progressive and recurrent dermatofibroma. (1) It corresponds to approximately 1% of all soft tissue sarcomas and to less than 0.1% of all malignancies with annual incidence of 0.8-4.5 cases per million.
The differential diagnosis is broad, including epidermoid cyst, sarcoma, calcified giant hemangioma, giant dermatofibroma, atypical mycobacterial infection, ossifying hematoma, giant cell tumor, foreign body reaction, cutaneous lymphoma, cutaneous metastasis and basal cell carcinoma.
Actinic Keratosis, Kaposi's sarcoma, Bowen's disease, Dermatofibroma, Atypical fibroxanthoma constituted the remaining.
Pink veil may be seen in benign lesions, including dermatofibroma, as well as basal cell carcinoma and melanoma [12].
FNAC of dermatofibroma showed low cellularity consisting of scattered spindle shaped cells lying against a fatty background.
