Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans resected by Mohs' surgery (Chemosurgery).
The tumour cells are composed of uniform population of monomorphic spindle cells arranged in storiform pattern with mitotic figures not exceeding 5 per 10 HPF.13 The American Joint Committee on Cancer has not established a staging system for Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP).
Final pathological examination showed a tumour composed of malignant spindle cells (figure 2 and 3; spindle shaped cells are arranged in storiform pattern) that are CD 34 positive (Figure 4; diffuse expression of CD34) and CK, S100, ER, PR and CD 68 negative which suggest the diagnosis of low-grade dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. The surgical resection margin was free of malignant cell involvement but less than 1.5 cm in width.

In addition, the imatinib mesylate tablets have been approved for adult patients with hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) and/or chronic eosinophilic leukemia (CEL), adult patients with unresectable, recurrent and/or metastatic dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, as well as for adjuvant treatment of adult patients following complete gross resection of Kit (CD117) positive gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) .

Bednar tumour, first described by Bednar in 1957, is a pigmented variant of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP).It is a rare entity, constituting 1 to 5% of all DFSPs, which in turn, represent 0.1% of skin malignancies.
