Myxoinflammatory Fibroblastic Sarcoma: A distinct soft tissue tumour of low-grade malignancy [Pathology Infographic]

 

Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma is a rare, painless, and intermediate (rarely metastasizing) fibroblastic tumor, which commonly occurs in the extremities, with an equal sex predilection.

This sarcoma is composed of a mixed inflammatory infiltrate along with spindled, epithelioid, and bizarre tumor cells in a background of hyaline and myxoid areas.

In spite of such a distinctive morphology, the tumor can be a diagnostic challenge, simulating inflammatory conditions as well as neoplastic nature.

For accurate diagnosis, the tumor requires extensive clinical, radiological, and pathological investigations.
