[Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberance].


A case of a 33-year-old Caucasian with asymptomatic subdermal dermatofibrosarcomal protuberance of the forehead. Surgical excision with three cm margin and early reconstruction with intraoperative haematurea catheter expansion reducing the defect by 50% and subsequent full thickness skin transplantation of the forehead bone was performed. The case stresses the importance of pathological evaluation of any resected tissue and supports the benefit of intraoperative tissue expansion of the forehead.
