The authors report two cases of retroperitoneal malignant fibrous histiocytoma which is a rare tumour (200 cases reported in the literature). The clinical and radiological signs are nonspecific and the diagnosis is based on histological examination of the specimen. Surgical resection must be as complete as possible to prevent local recurrence. The efficacy of adjuvant therapy has not been demonstrated due to the low incidence of this tumour.
