Abstract

In July 1994, a 27 year-old man presented with a twice recurrent, pigmented tumor on his left wrist. Wide excision and histological examination showed a pigmented dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (PDFSP) or Bednar tumor with foci of fibrosarcomatous (FS) change. Immunohistochemistry helped to distinguish it from cellular blue nevus and malignant melanoma. In January 1997, he presented with 3 swellings on his thighs which showed features of fibrosarcoma. In March 1998, he developed multiple tumors on his thighs, chest wall, supraclavicular region, parapharyngeal region and two lung nodules. To the best of our knowledge, there are only 3 previously published reports of metastases in patients with Bednar tumor. We present the fourth such case.
