Abstract

Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) are rare soft-tissue sarcomas that usually come to attention as slow growing masses. Males and females are affected approximately equally and typically arising in the soft tissue of the proximal extremities. Primary occurrence within the head and neck is exceedingly rare. We report a case arising from the hard palate of a 40-year-old male and according to our knowledge this is the first ever case of LGFMS involving the palate to be reported.
