Recurrent Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma of Maxillary Sinus: A Rare Case Report

Sekar bala, Dominic Augustine, Murali S


Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is a high-grade and aggressive sarcoma. It is a type of histiocytoma that is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of late adult life. These tumors rarely involve the head and neck region. Wide excision followed by postoperative radiotherapy is believed to be the treatment of choice for malignant fibrous histiocytoma. We present a rare case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the maxillary sinus in a 72 year old female with recurrence.
