Dermatofibroma; Sclerosing hemangioma
Benign fibrous histiocytoma is a cutaneous tumor with predominantly dermal involvement, mainly composed of cells with fibro-histiocytic differentiation.
It may occur at any age, but it is most common in adults.
The treatment of choice is surgical excision.
Complete surgical excision is usually curative.
BFH appears as a firm, non-encapsulated lesion of the dermis, with white to yellow cut surface. Cystic changes and hemorrhage may be present.
