Abstract

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a slow-growing, locally invasive tumour of the dermis. It commonly presents in the trunks and proximal extremities but is seen to a lesser extent in the head and neck regions. We present a case report of a recurrent DFSP in a 48-year-old Iban woman at the occipital region. The patient underwent wide local excision and removal of outer table of cranium, dressing followed by split thickness skin graft. Histopathological examination confirmed dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans with clear lateral surgical margins and a deep margin of 0.5mm. She is currently undergoing radiotherapy and is planned for 50Grey 25cycles. © 2019, Malaysian Medical Association.
