Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberance: A Case Report and Review of Literature

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberance (DFSP) is a relatively uncommon soft tissue tumor with intermediate-to-low grade malignancy. There is paucity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scan literature on the appearance of DSFP .We de-scribe the imaging findings of another rare case of DFSP in a 35 year diabetic male with progressive left arm painless swelling over seven months. CT scan and MRI were per-formed and reveal a mass lesion originating from the skin and embedded in the subcutane-ous mass. Excisional biopsy was done and the histopathology confirmed the diagnosis DFSP.
