Clinic Pathological Study of Aneurysmal Fibrous Histiocytoma
Aneurysmal fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) is a rare variant of benign fibrous histiocytoma (FH), Characterized by blood-filled spaces within the fibrohistiocytic tumor. AFH has a higher recurrence rate than FH. The diagnosis of AFH is often problematic due to its overlapping morphological features with other skin tumors. The diagnosis of AFH depends on histological features and immunohistochemistry. The aim of this study is to understand the clinical and histopathological diagnostic criteria for AFH.
