Pleomorphic Fibroma
Chen-Yen Lin, Chang-Lin Chen, Wen-Jen Wang, Chu-Kwan Wong
Dermatol Sinica 19: 311-315, 2001

Pleomorphic fibroma, a benign fibroblastic proliferation with striking nuclear atypia, is extremely rare. We describe a 45-year-old female patient who has had an asymptomatic tumor on her left inframammary area for 1 year. Excision surgery was performed and the histopathology showed a cutaneous fibrous mass with sparse cellularity, nuclear atypia but without mitotic figures. The diagnosis of pleomorphic fibroma was confirmed. One year after the surgery there was a similar lesion developed on her abdomen wall, and the histopathology also showed a pleomorphic fibroma. Neither recurrence of primary lesions nor development of new lesions were noted after a 8-month follow-up.
