CACERES LAVERNIA, Haslen et al. Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans: Case presentation. Rev haban cienc méd [online]. 2009, vol.8, suppl.5, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1729-519X.
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is a relatively uncommon soft tissue neoplasm with intermediate-to-low grade malignancy that rarely metastasizes (1-5%) but has a high incidence of local recurrence. A case of Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans in right gluteus was presented, and after resection of the tumor a lung and bone metastases was discovered. The clinical form of presentation and the treatment are described. We proposed to review and analyze the scientific evidence available in the world literature for determining clinical manifestations most frequent in Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans as well as diagnostic means widely used in current times.
