Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans of the scalp.


Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is an uncommon tumour of the dermis and rarely occurs on the scalp; there are few known predisposing factors. A case is described of such a tumour that occurred at the site of radiotherapy for a basal cell carcinoma. Histological characteristics, behaviour and management of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans are discussed.
