Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma (MFH) is a controversial soft tissue malignancy whose pathogenesis continues to be redefined. It remains the most often used term for soft tissue sarcomas of late adult life. It has also been described to originate from the bone and rarely found in the mandible. Primary involvement of the mandible with MFH is an unusual presentation. A case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma, which posed a diagnostic difficulty, is presented here.
