Fibrosarcoma of maxilla: A rare case report


Fibrosarcoma is a malignant tumor of fibroblasts. At one time, it was considered one of the most common soft tissue sarcomas. However, the diagnosis of fibrosarcoma is made much less frequently today because of the recognition and separate classification of other spindle cell lesions that have similar microscopic features. Of all the fibrosarcomas occurring in humans, only 0.05% occur in the head and neck region. Here, we present a case of 22-year-old female patient with the swelling on the left anterior aspect of the face. Histopathologically, the lesion was diagnosed as fibrosarcoma and immunohistochemically, the lesional cells showed positivity for vimentin.
