Benign fibrohistiocytic tumour of soft tissues of limbs is a rare type of soft tissue tumor. It is caused by the accumulation of abnormal fibrohistiocytic cells in the soft tissue of the limbs.
A diagnosis of benign fibrohistiocytic tumour of soft tissues of limbs is made by imaging tests such as CT or MRI scans and biopsy.
Other soft tissue tumors such as malignant fibrous histiocytoma and liposarcoma must be ruled out.
Treatment usually consists of surgical excision of the tumor. Depending on the size and location of the tumor, radiation therapy or chemotherapy may be required.
The prognosis for benign fibrohistiocytic tumours of soft tissues of limbs is generally good. Complete excision of the tumour is usually curative.
