Abstract

Low-grade myofibroblastic sarcoma (LGMS) is a rare sarcoma with myofibroblastic differentiation. LGMS has a propensity for local recurrence and is associated with a low risk of metastatic spread. A 26-year-old man presented with a 12-month history of a slow growing palpable hard mass in the right parietal scalp. Enhanced CT scan of head showed a 3x4 cm sized well-defined and heterogeneously enhancing scalp mass. The patient underwent excision of the tumor. The histological and immunohistochemical features were consistent with a LGMS. We performed re-operation for remnant tumor removal after diagnosis. After 14 months of surgery, the patient was well-being state.
