Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) arising within a cholecystectomy incision: a cause-and-effect relationship is possible between previous surgery and the development of a malignant fibrous histiocytoma within the operative site.

Abstract

We present a report of a patient who, after an uneventful cholecystectomy, developed an incisional mass that proved to be a malignant fibrous histiocytoma and had to be excised. Five months later, the patient developed a similar incisional mass, which was shown to be a malignant fibrous histiocytoma and again had to be excised. The rarity of such a case and the details of the patient's case history are reported. The implications of a possible relationship between previous surgery, the patient's healing response, and the development of these tumors are discussed.
